Prince Ludwig to Mr. Hans Georg von Wartenberg


F. Ludwig (The Nourishing) thanks Mr. Hans Georg v. Wartenberg (FG 143. Der Fortjagende) for his company letter of September 1, 1638 a. St. Unfortunately he could not send GB 1629/30 to Wartenberg because he no longer had any copies. Because of the war, the book has not yet been able to be reprinted, although the number of members has now risen to 324. At the moment Ludwig could not write to a certain member, as requested by Wartenberg, but had to wait until the paths were safe. - F. Ludwig sends a verse poem to Wartenberg (his "Kurtze narration Von dem Erdierter Cupidine") and announces the appearance of other works, especially his didactic poem Das Buch Job (Wittenberg 1638), written in the same verse (Alexandriner). He would send him the new publications through a correspondent in Leipzig, if Wartenberg names him.

Against the fort-hunter, the Nehrende thanked the best diligent that he gave him from 1./11. In the autumn month, if the others want to greet the others with it sent by a company letter1, he enjoys his kind presence, with the attached wish that he who chased away also with his own desire and demand for his own self: he wanted the society book2, which was promoted elsewhere We are happy to send back donors, but because their pieces are no longer available, also because of the arduous wars that have fallen into place and the wars still defending, such things cannot be put up for printing again, regardless of the fact that the company has still grown, and until this hour has reached one hundred and twenty-four people , 4 the Nehrender hopes to be as excused as possible for the chasing man below: the Nehrender would like it too t likes to write to conscious shareholders5 of enthusiastic masses, but because the certainty of taking such writing away does not exist at all, he has to wait until the same occasion and should not be forgotten at such a safe time.
A few rhyming poems have been added, 6 of which the chasing poem is hereby made a part: So other fine matters will shortly come to light as well, in particular the Book of Job7 translated into rhymes of the same kind with useful teachings about every chapter; If the chasing person would like to name someone in the vicinity, especially to Leipzig8, to deliver such things to him, books and pieces should be willingly given to him by the donor. In this way, those who hunted away fell into the safe protection of God
supreme, and remains

Ludwigs, who died on October 9, 1637, Friedrich v. Schilling (FG 21. 1619. Der Langsame), Opitz had sent parts of this work before publication - apparently for the purpose of review - has been lost. Cf. also 371222 K III 0, 380226 K 1, 380606 K 3, 381218, 381224, 390110, 390310, 390514, 390630 and 390807. On the work see Diane Trutta-Szabo: Prince Ludwig of Anhalt's Book of Job: An Example of Christian Hebraism during the Thirty Years' War, Phil. Diss. University of Pittsburgh 1998. - F. Ludwig may have sent this book to Wartenberg soon afterwards, along with the following small collection, which appeared around the same time as Das Buch Job: Geistliche Lieder | vnd | Psalms. | [Line] | Printed in 1638. LHA Sa.-Anh./ Dessau: Dept. Köthen A 9a No. 167, sheets 74r – 80v and 1 unfollowing blank sheet (i.e. 4 ° 8 sheets; 2nd copy: sheet 81r – 87v and 1 unfollowing blank sheet); SLB Dresden; SUB Goettingen: Th. Bibl. 732/60; Württemb. LB Stuttgart. The three last-mentioned copies of the anthology are bound behind Das Buch Job. Collation: 4 °; Title page, back blank; Bl. A ij r - A iij r "Der Ander Psalm." (Inc .: "HJlf Gott wie geht dashin") 9 Str., [Already in: Form of prayers and other church services / for the pastors of the Principality of Anhalt / Cöthnischen Part: ... Sampt a number of sacred songs set for this (Cöthen 1629); see 270406 K 11, 380504 K 14 pp. 135-138]; A iij v - [A iiij] r “The 127th Psalm.” (“In forgiveness is labor and cost”) 5 str .; [A iiij] v - B r “The 103rd Psalm.” (“ES praise God the Lord”) 4 str .; B r - Bij v "Teaching vnd consolation song from the work of redemption." B ij v - B iij v "The song of the holy baptism improved in fatal rhymes." 1 sheet (sheet B iv) empty]. Dünnhaupt: Handbuch, 2613 (Art. Prince Ludwig von Anhalt-Köthen, No. 10) rightly suspects that the small collection of religious poems published anonymously and without specifying the place of printing was printed by Johann Röhner in Wittenberg. The collection is not only bound behind F. Ludwig's reworking Das Buch Hiob (Wittenberg 1638: Johann Röhner), but also partly printed with the same letters. See e.g. B. the ornamental letters h, G, L and V. S. Conermann: Fürstl. Offizin, 136 note 54. In the song to the 127th Psalm, the author speaks of God as the guardian of the human regiment - which is missing in the Bible. There is also talk of God's gift of children. This is in the psalm, but it fits the year of birth of Pz. Wilhelm Ludwig v. Anhalt-Köthen (August 3, 1638, cf. 380803). The proof of a handwriting in IP, 344r: “Sr F. Gn. written psalm and spiritual songs, as well as Sr F. Gn. Geselschaftt rhyme. ”In 1638 F. Ludwig also completed his great poetry on the biblical psalms. Cf. also IP, 337v: “Convolut Manuscriptorum Sr. Hochseel. Princely Gnd. in it various sacred chants and psalms also Sr. F. G. Reiße carminice (?) deutzsch ”(Ludwig's description of his travels in the Netherlands, England, France and Italy 1596–1599 in Beckmann: Accessiones, 165–292). - The attraction of the Job theme, the proving of faith in temptation, especially in the incessant war and crisis experiences of that time, Diederich v. to Werder in his letter to F. Johann Casimir v. Anhalt-Dessau (FG 10) of December 1638 make it clear: “Summa all day new hiobische newspapers. God turn it and end it ”(LHA Sa.-Anh./ Dessau: Abt. Dessau A 10 No. 76, Bl. 1r).

The day of St. Amalia (Amalberga) is in the Roman calendar of saints i. d. R. celebrated on July 10th (Ecumenical Lexicon of Saints; in places also on October 22nd, see Grotefend II.2, 60).
