Trubar's Catechismus, first page

Catechismus in der windischenn Sprach or shortly Catechismus (Catechism, also known as Katekizem v slovenskem jeziku or shortly Katekizem in modern Slovene), is a book written by the Slovene Protestant preacher Primož Trubar in 1550.[1] Along with Trubar's 1550 book, Abecedarium (Abecedary), Catechismus was the first book published in Slovene.[1] Catechismus served as part of a foundation of the establishment of a national identity for Slovenes.[1]

History

Although it was for decades assumed that Catechismus was printed in Tübingen, new research has shown that it was most probably printed in 1550 by Peter Frentz in Schwäbisch Hall.[2]
