Linguists, historians of literature and of typography from Poland, Lithuania and Czech Republic join their efforts in this volume to present not only the fascinating phenomenon of a varied and long-lasting movement of translating, commenting and printing of the Bible in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the 16th and 17th centuries, but also depict the actual state of research on the subject. A quick rise of the different Reformation movements contributed to a ‘natural’ need for new translations and commentaries to be used by community members. These new currents, first easily accepted and spread in the country, even when suppressed, could not stop this activity, and later new Catholic translations and commentaries of the post-Trident period, both in Polish and Lithuanian, proved it. Big part of study is also dedicated to particular typographical realizations of this activity and an example of the musical expression directly inspired by the biblical translation, is also provided.
