Very decorative and rare print to commemorate the 200 year Confession of the Augsburg Protestant Confession. Engraved by J. Kleinschmidt after a design of E. Ridinger.
Displays a missionary scene, bordered by broad ornaments and floral border. Below a small map of India (55 x 110mm.) flanked by two natives, who each hold a portrait in oval and coat of arms and "Grundriss von der Ierusalems Kirchen" (floor plan of the churches of Jerusalem.)
The print was separately published and also appeared in J.M.Roth, "Augspurgisches Iubel-Gedächtnüs" in 1732.

Underneath a eight line text in Latin and German, with the following text :
Spargitur eoas divinum lumen in oras,
Et tristes tenebrae discutiuntur ibi.
Qui latices hausit stygios iam fonte salutis
Indus roratur, sacra fluenta bibens.
Tartareus cultu meliori pellitur hostis,
Destruit armipotens numina ficta manus.
Christe! Tibi pariat porro tua dextra triumphos,
Disiice labantes et phlegetonis opes.

Des höchsten Gnadenreich erweitert seine Grenzen,
Es bricht der Wahrheit Licht den armen Heiden an,
Man sieht im Orient die reine Lehre glänzen,
Es tritt das schwarze Volk nun auf die Lebens-Bahn,
Der stumme Götze muss vom alten Sitze weichen,
Man nimmt den wahren Gott in Kirch und Herzen ein,
Lass, Heiland! deine Hand noch immer weiter reichen,
Und deiner Lehre Sieg recht ausgebreitet sein.

Together with 4pp. letterpress in German with a very detailed description of the activities of the Missionaries in India.

Reference: Thienemann 915. Thieme/B. XXVIII, 308.
