In the late 17th-century, Polish immigrants moved to Germany and brought with them the skill of printing, particularly Hebrew and Jewish texts.

This edition became the basis for almost all later reprints of the Talmud, yet after being confiscated by the censors, it remained under lock and key for over thirty years."

1494 Jean Gerson INCUNABLE Medieval Catholic Poem Mysticism Josephina Incunabula An extremely rare volume from the 1494 printing of the complete works of Jean Gerson. Gerson was one of the most prominent 14th-century French scholars and played an important role in the development of the Council of Constance. He was distinguished by adopting mysticism as a primary focus of his theology, though today, his works are held in high regard especially within the Catholic Church. In 1494, Strasbourg publisher Martin Flach printed the complete works of Gerson in three volumes over the course of a few months at the end of the year. Curiously, the third part is dated August while the first two parts are dated December of 1494. This incredibly impressive third volume of the complete works of Gerson includes a full-page woodcut engraving of Gerson climbing toward a castle. It also features many of his works on mysticism, evangelism, meditations, exercises in devotion, an exposition on Psalms, living a solitary life, as ... Read more

1684 Saint Theophilus of Antioch Apology of Autolycus PAGAN Worship Holy Trinity Theophilus of Antioch was a 2nd-century early church father primarily remembered solely for his work 'Apology to Autolycus'. This work is a collection of short books in which Theophilus defended Christianity to his pagan friend. He describes how he himself was born into paganism but found truth through Holy Scriptures and began to identify the flaws of pagan worship. While this work is notable for refuting pagan practices, it is perhaps best-known for being the earliest Christian work to use the word 'trinity' when referring to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, even though 'Apology' is rooted in Jewish and Old Testament Hebrew scriptures.
