--Michael D. Henson, Pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church (Herrin, IL).
Picture: Although Martin Luther was not the first to translate the Bible into German, he was the first to translate the text from the original biblical languages. First printed at Wittenberg in September 1522, Luther’s German New Testament was considered a philological and literary masterpiece that exerted enormous influence on the development of modern German. This second edition, known as the “Dezembertestament,” is the earliest publication in Bridwell Library’s extensive collection of Protestant Bibles printed in numerous vernacular languages.
