|Notes:||First of six German and one Latin unofficial printings of the Augsburg Confession. Emperor Charles V had forbidden the printing of the text already at the Diet of Augsburg, but to no avail. Melanchthon, displeased with the text of these unofficial printings, and, no longer feeling compelled by the emperor's restriction in the light of the fact that it had already been broken, issued his own edition of the text in Wittenberg in 1531.
Signed by John, Elector of Saxony, et al.
