Summa der Heiligen Schrift
Summa der Heiligen Schrift, a booklet published at Leipzig in 1520, and in new editions by Eduard Böhmer in 1877 and by Karl Benrath in 1880. The author is unknown. Since the booklet maintains that it would be better if no one were baptized until maturity and that war is contrary to the Gospel, it can be assumed that it originated in circles akin to the Anabaptists.
