book Information

On August 23rd 2011, the editors of the book Jesuit Books in the Low Countries 1540-1773: A Selection from the Maurits Sabbe Library, were informed that serious plagiarism had been detected in the article by M.W. F. Stone, “Peter Wadding S.J., Disputatio theologica de praedestinatione et gratia (1621)”, which appears on pp. 44-47 of the book. Extensive passages in this article were taken from J. Blom and F. Blom, “Wadding, Peter (1583-1644)”, in Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, vol. 56: Usk-Wallich, ed. H. C. G. Matthew and Brian Harrison (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2004), pp. 650a-651a (without due citation of the original source.)
It goes without saying that the editors strongly disapprove of such practices, which represent a serious assault on intellectual integrity. They condemn any violation of the author’s rights (J. Blom and F. Blom) and the copyright of the publisher (Oxford University Press), and distance themselves from these practices. They apologize for not having detected this prior to the publication of the volume.
