Low German Bible of Barth (Barther Bibel)

Duke Bogislaw XIII (reigned in Barth 1573 - 1604) founded a publishing house and his own court printing house in Barth. In addition to the production of about 45 books, the first complete bible printing took place in Pomerania. The Luther text was printed in Low German in an unknown but relatively large edition. The Bible contains more than 90 woodcuts, which were cast into metal. The copy exhibited at the Bible Centre contains coloured woodcuts.
