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.

GERMANIC NOTES AND REVIEWS "The bibliographical descriptions are exemplary, as is the typography." DEUTSCHE BUECHER 'This detailed work serves as a point of departure for our discovery of two new authors and thus will be of far-reaching value.' MONATSHEFTE
