Ad 1: One of the earliest editions of the Saxon ecclesiastical rite. The name "Agenda" (things to be done; German Agende or Kirchenagende) is given, particularly in the Lutheran Church, to the official books dealing with the forms and ceremonies of divine service: prayer, communion, baptism, ordinations of minsters, etc.
Ad 2: Sermon by Georg Mylius, delivered at the Reichstag at Augsburg on the fourth Sunday after Trinity, from the Gospels of Luke 6. Georg Mylius (1548-1607) was a Lutheran professor of theology at Wittenberg and Jena. In 1571 he returned to his native town Augsburg where he became minister and general superintendent.
Ad 3: The first of four editions of a polemical pamphlet against the theologians at Meissen on their "Zwinglical" and Calvinistic ideas about the Communion. Three more editions followed in 1574 and 1575. On the last page (E4r) four colleagues endorse his views: Tileman Hesshusius, Benedictus Morgenstern, Hieronymus Mörlin and Johannes Wedmann.
Ad 4: Second enlarged edition of a polemical pamphlet on the Sacrament of the Transsubstantiation, based on the Augsburg Confession and sent to the brethren in France. Urban Graubisch, also in Eisleben, printed the first edition in 1562 in 8vo.
Ad 5: Sermon by Caspar Heiderichs (1510-1586) a German Lutheran theologian and reformer who was one of Luthers "Tischgenossen". In 1553 he was appointed minister of the church (Pfarrer) and Superintendant to Thorgau, a city in Saxony where Luthers wife, Katharina von Bora (1499-1552), is buried.
Ad 6: Sermon delivered in Freiberg, Saxony, on 22 July 1553 at the funeral of the Elector Duke Morits (Maurice) of Saxony (1521-1553), who a few days before had been mortally wounded in the battle of Sievershausen. It was delivered by Moritss court and army chaplain Johann Weiss (ca.1500-1561), who later returned to Meissen where he became Domprediger.
Ad 7: One of the three Leipzig editions of a sermon delivered in Leipzig on 19 July 1553 at the funeral of the Elector Duke Morits (Maurice) of Saxony (1521-1553), mortally wounded a few days before in the battle of Sievershausen.
Ad 8: First edition of a short work in defence of Luther and Philip Melanchton and against the "pseudo-Calvinists" in Saxony.
Ad 9: One of the two editions of a treatise on the controversial Lutheran and Reformed principle of the Justification: that no matter what a person's action, salvation comes through faith alone, not of works. Salvation is Gods gift at Gods sole prerogative. The other edition was printed in the same year in Wittenberg by Peter Seitz.
Ad 10: 1567 edition by Matthes Stöckel in Dresden, of a treatise on the controversial Lutheran and Reformed principle of justification by faith alone: that no matter what a person's action, salvation comes through faith alone, not through good works, and that salvation is Gods gift at Gods sole prerogative.
