This chapter suggests that the year 1565 represents something of a high point for the output of the Protestant printing presses in Emden, Germany. From 1564 to 1565 it had become clear that the clamp-down on conventicles had not succeeded in solving the problem posed by religious dissent. Various Protestant groups congregated and launched demonstrations to oppose heresy policies of various governments. In these endeavours, Emden provided the necessary documents and literature vital to the cause of Dutch Protestantism.
