Von Grumbach's Warning

Argula Staufferin von Grumbach (1492–ca. 1568).
Ein Christennliche Schrifft einer erbarn Frawen vom Adel, darinn sie alle Christenliche stendt und obrikeiten ermant, bey der Warheit und dem Wort Gottes zůpleiben, und solchs ausz Christlicher Pflicht zum ernstlichsten zů handthaben.
[Bamberg: Georg Erlinger, 1523]. (BRA0373)

One of the few laypersons to publish polemical works during the early years of the Protestant Reformation, Argula von Grumbach went on to publish eight pamphlets, including this letter in which she admonished all believers to fulfill their duty as good Christians by living faithfully by the word of God alone. The woodcut on the title page shows the followers of the Whore of Babylon (Revelation 17) failing in this duty.
