He is credited with the creation of some 128 books and was counted among his correspondents as one of the leading scholars of his age. Fabricius esteemed the work of church fathers since he believed they best represented the true sentiments and reasoning of Christians in the first ages after the apostles. He valued the simplicity and godly sincerity of that first age of the church. Fabricius believed that modern literature was debased by the substitution of rhetoric for the purity of thought and poetry of older times. In this early apology, Fabricius makes an account of the chief apologists before him, focusing on Eusebius of Caesarea, including fragments of their lost writings. He aimed to remove prejudices from the works so that the reader could be expected to submit to Christianity. His Delectus treatise is slightly controversial in tone as it contains a summary of sermons and truth of the Christian religion over Islam, which was "against the norm." With Muslims, Fabricius also argues against the beliefs of atheists, epicureans, deists, naturalists, pagans and Jews. This is a first edition work from the prolific Hamburger publisher Felginer (fl. 1726-1739). Important work on the philosophical argument for Christianity by a leading eighteenth century scholar, viewed in the presence of the dissolution, both social and political, this work seems impending.
