 Item — Folder: 1
Identifier: Vault MSS 489
Scope and Contents This volume includes handwritten copies of three pamphlets, likely made from the original printed version. "Disputatio nova contra mulieres, qua ostenditz, eas homines non esse" is a refutation of "Defensio sexus muliebris opposita futilis" by Simon Gedik (1551-1631). Gedik's essay is a defense of Socinian logic and the former document is an attack on that mode of thinking as well as a satirical attack on the nature of women. The pamphlet was probably first published in 1594 or 1595.
