From Passau to Pennsylvania
This event has expired and is here for your information.
An interesting and informative lecture. We plan to display the only know copy of the 1564 Ausbund- the first-know printed collection of hymns still in use today. The 1564 edition was not called the Ausbund; it was titled the Etliche schone Christliche Geseng. Founded in this first edition are hymns written by Anabaptists imprisioned at Passau in the 1530s. Joe A. Springer has served as a curator of the Mennonite Historical Library since 1986- he will give basic information about the 1564 Ausbund and speak about other European editions.
