Old (Catholic?) German prayer book
« on: August 11, 2017, 09:03:57 PM »
Saw this on Imgur:

I'm guessing it's Catholic based on the IHS, Pope, etc...

Anyone care to take a stab at what the pages are saying?

Looks like a Catholic prayer book in German with some odd spellings.  That last photo is morning and evening prayers.

From mid/late 1600s according to the original poster. I'm guessing the spelling, like English, has evolved over time.

That sounds reasonable. Like, for example, I think the larger text says stuff like Erster Theil, which nowadays drops the h.  It means first part.

In the third pic down, the first paragraph extols the BVM and Heavenly Army. Prior to that, it mentions Christ'so suffering and Passion. Sounds Catholic to me.
