Emden and the Dutch Revolt

This chapter examines the activities of the printing presses in Emden, Germany, and their role in supporting the evangelical congregation of the Netherlands. Emden printing represented possibly the most important contribution of the town in the shaping of Dutch Protestantism. Though Emden shared the functions of a mother Church with other exile centres, its role as a printing centre was never challenged. It was the single most important centre for the production of Dutch vernacular Protestant literature during the Reformation.
