Malleus maleficarum. The hammer of witchcraft by Heinrich Institoris( Book )

11 editions published between 1494 and 1496 in Latin and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Malleus Maleficarum (Latin for "The Hammer of Witches") is a famous treatise on witches, written in 1486 by Heinrich Kramer, an Inquisitor of the Catholic Church, and was first published in Germany in 1487. Jacob Sprenger is also often attributed as an author. The main purpose of the Malleus was to attempt to systematically refute arguments claiming that witchcraft does not exist, discredit those who expressed skepticism about its reality, to claim that witches were more often women than men, and to educate magistrates on the procedures that could find them out and convict them. -- Publisher's description

The golden legend; or, Lives of the saints by Jacobus( Book )

17 editions published between 1478 and 1496 in Latin and German and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the books which afford us an insight into the popular religious thought of the middle ages, none holds a more important place than the Legenda Aurea or Golden Legend. The book was compiled and put into form about the year 1275 by Jacobus de Voragine, Archbishop of Genoa, who laid under contribution for his purpose the Lives of the Fathers by S. Jerome, the Ecclesiastical History of Eusebius, and other books of a like kind; while for the lives of the saints more nearly approaching his own age he appears to have industriously collected such legends as he could meet with, whether in manuscript or handed down by oral tradition."--Prologue
Lives of the popes by Platina( Book )

6 editions published in 1481 in Latin and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bartolomeo Platina (1421-1481), historian, political theorist, and author of a best-selling cookbook, began life as a mercenary soldier and ended it as the head of the Vatican Library. A papal official under the humanist Pope Pius II, he was a member of the humanist academies of Cardinal Bessarion and Pomponio Leto, and was twice imprisoned for conspiring against Pope Paul II. Returning to favor under Pope Sixtus IV, he composed his most famous work, a biographical compendium of the Roman popes from St. Peter down to his own time. The work critically synthesized a wide range of sources and became the standard reference work on papal history for early modern Europe, reprinted dozens of times and translated into a number of languages. A characteristic work of Renaissance humanism, it used Christian antiquity as a standard against which to criticize modern churchmen. This edition contains the first complete translation into English and an improved Latin text. Volume 1, the first of a projected four, covers the period from the founding of the church through ad 461. -- Jacket

Anton Koberger : zum 500. Todestag des Druckers der Schedelschen Weltchronik ; [Ausstellung der Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg im Ausstellungskabinett Stadtbibliothek Zentrum, 20. September - 28. Dezember 2013] by Anton Koberger( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zum 500. Todestag des Druckers, Verlegers und Buchhändlers Anton Koberger öffnet die Nürnberger Stadtbibliothek ihre Schatzkammern: Eine Ausstellung zeigt seltene Buchdrucke, darunter ein Exemplar der "Schedelschen Weltchronik".00Anton Koberger war um 1470 als Drucker in Nürnberg tätig. Er stieg schnell zu einem Großunternehmer auf, der europaweit Geschäfte machte und den Buchmarkt im deutschsprachigen Raum dominierte. Auch war Koberger einer der Ersten, der das Buch als geistige Ware erkannte und auch so vermarktete: Koberger bot erstmals gebrauchsfertige Bücher mit zierendem Buchschmuck und einem Einband an.00Koberger wurde 1493 für die "Schedelsche Weltchronik" verpflichtet, deren lateinische und deutsche Ausgaben als die am reichsten bebilderten Drucke gelten, die vor 1500 entstanden. Um die Verzahnung der Texte mit den rund 1.800 Holzschnittillustrationen zu gewährleisten, wurden eigens Reinschriften angefertigt. Diese einzigartigen Vorzeichnungen und Layouts mit Zeichnungen aus der Werkstatt des Malers Michael Wolgemut, dem Lehrer von Albrecht Dürer, sind ein Höhepunkt der Ausstellung.00Insgesamt werden 25 ausgewählte Werke in einer Ausstellung zu Ehren Kobergers gezeigt. Die Bücher geben einen Eindruck über die damalige Buchproduktion und die Zusammenarbeit von Buchmalern und Buchbindern. Die Stadtbibliothek beherbergt mehr als die Hälfte der produzierten Werke des Druckers: Insgesamt sind 130 von schätzungsweise 250 Büchern in der Bibliothek untergebracht.00Exhibition: Stadtbibliothek Nürnberg, Germany; 20.9. - 28.12.2013
