Spanish New Testament
[Spanish New Testament].
El Nuevo Testamento de nuestro redemptor y solo Salvador Iesu Christo, traduçido de Griego en Castellana.
Antwerp: Stephan Mierdmann, 25 October 1543. (BRA0358)
The first edition of the scriptures in Castilian Spanish, this New Testament was translated from the Greek by Françisco de Enzinas (c. 1515–1552), who dedicated the work to Emperor Charles V in the hope of gaining official approval for circulation within Spain. However, Catholic censors found the translation highly objectionable and in 1551 it was placed on the first Spanish Index of Prohibited Books.
