Rare Latin edition of one of Althamer’s most widely read writings. In 1527 Althamer published a refutation of a treatise by the Anabaptist leader Hans Denck (ca. 1495-1527), in which Denck had collected 40 apparently contradictory Scriptural passages. Althamer however, who added 60 further paradoxes of his own choice, showed the contradictions to be mere appearance which could be solved in a number of ways. In the years following the list of alleged discrepancies was greatly enlarged and finally the edition published in 1534 -as well as all later editions- discussed no less than 200 seemingly contradictory passages in the Bible. It went at least through 12 more editions in the sixteenth century and has also been translated in German. – Dated owner’s inscription on first endpaper, library stamp and some library shelfmarks on title page, a single annotation on last endpaper, and a few old marginal annotations.
