Our Oldest Bible Leaves : 1523 Luther Pentateuch

1537 Matthew-Tyndale Bible | 1529 Luther N.T. | [1523 Luther Pentateuch]

1523 Luther Pentateuch:
The Oldest Printed German Scripture


A leaf from the earliest printing of the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament) in the German language. These leaves are within a decade of being 500 years old. They come with beautiful Certificates of Authenticity. If you are looking for the oldest printed scripture in any language other than Latin or Greek… this is it. It doesn’t get any older than this. A great gift for friends of German or Lutheran heritage, or anyone who appreciates Christian history.

These leaves measure approximately 6 inches tall by 4 inches wide. They were printed on 100% rag cotton linen sheet, not wood-pulp paper like books today, so they remain in excellent condition… even after nearly 500 years. Each leaf is a unique piece of ancient artwork, carefully produced one-at-a-time, using a movable-type press.

Perhaps more so than any other man, Martin Luther paved the way for the Protestant Reformation. Imagine… having an ancient passage of scripture from the oldest printed German scripture: The 1523 Martin Luther Pentateuch.
