    Bestselling Luther translation 1522 to 2022

    500 years of Luther translation
    2021 04455 Druck Samariter
    500 years of Luther translation

    When an anonymous German translation of the New Testament appeared at the autumn fairs in Leipzig and Frankfurt exactly 500 years ago, it was immediately out of print. There was a reason for this: even if the name was not mentioned - the translation had to be by the monk Martin Luther, who was persecuted by the emperor and the pope.

    The "September Testament" was followed by eighty (!) more editions of the Luther Bible during Luther's lifetime (1483-1546) - and countless pirated copies. The first real bestseller in the history of books.
