1705 RARE Catholic German Bible Sacra Biblia Dietenberger anti Luther FOLIO An incredibly rare, early 18th-century German Holy Bible. Following the Protestant Reformation, most Bibles published in Germany were printed from a Lutheran perspective, edited and translated from those originally established by Martin Luther. However, a select number of Catholic ministers remained devout through their careers, including 16th-century theologian Johann Dietenberger. Johann Dietenberger, a Catholic peer of Luther, published a German translation of the Bible and took the majority of his New Testament from Emser's edition. Notably, this edition was highly criticized by Martin Luther. The rare Dietenberger Bible, as it has become known, was only published from 1705 to 1747.
