CHRISTLICHE BETRACHTUNGEN UBER DIE EVANGELISCHEN TEXTE, by Erasmus Weichenhan - 1791
Christliche Betrachtungen Uber Die Evangelischen Texte
by Erasmus Weichenhan
A stately ancient edition of a work of deep interest in Christian Protestant literature. An ex-lutheran minister and a member of the Schwenkfelder community, Erasmus Weichenhan wrote these meditations on the Evangelical Bible texts as an enlightened explanation and addition to the Holy Bible. Any Protestant could read it for Sunday services and sacred celebrations. Complete with an introduction by the author and an index. Written in German in the original fraktur type, this volume is a precious example of 18th century book binding. 788 pages. 7 x 8.5 inches.
