Image description:

This volume is John's account of the history of the Schwenkfeldian community, beginning with its break with Martin Luther. It provides a detailed description of the group's movements in Europe, including the names of men and women who helped them, many of whom John knew personally. The volume ends mid-sentence and an unknown number of pages are missing at the end of the narrative.
