During the second half of the seventeenth century two generations of the extraordinary Klesch family produced hundreds of literary works; they chronicle the hardships of war and exile, and contributed significantly to the development of a distinctive Protestant literary tradition centred in the Zips area of present-day Slovakia. The Kleschs' works also offer unique insights into German exiles and the role of German language societies in aiding them; the Lutheran community and the Catholic Counter-Reformation in Hungary; sermons and spiritualistic literature; and apocalypticism in the late seventeenth century.
This volume provides a bibliography to the writings of the Klesch family; the introduction explains the significance of the family and its works and outlines their lives.
