Abstract

The German translations of the Confessio belgica (1563 and 1566) For a long time the history of the genesis and later vicissitudes of the Corrf ession de foy, faicte d'un commun accord par les fidèles qui conversent es Pays Bas, drafted by Guido de Bres in 1561, have been a focus of at- tention for ecclesiastical historians and bibliographers.l Despite this, there is much that remains to be cleared up. In this article I wish to draw attention to the two German translations which appeared in the sixteenth century. I recently succeeded in tracing a number of copies of these little books, long thought to have been lost for ever, so that now it is at last possible to give a few details about the printing, the text, and the translator. 2 At the same time their rediscovery makes possible a closer examination of the information passed down to us about the role which the Con fessio belgica is supposed to have played in religious politics in the Germany of the time. The earliest German-language edition of the Confessio belgica came from the press in 1563. The title is as follows: Bekantnusz des Glaubens, der gemeyne, so hin
