Gesellschafft Jesu biss zur vergiessung ihres Blutes wider den Götzendienst, Unglauben, und Laster, für Gott, den wahren Glauben, und Tugenden in allen vier Theilen der Welt streitend…(Prague, 1683)

Translation by Bartholomaeus Christel of Tanner’s Societas Jesu usque ad sanguinis et vitae profusionem militans, an illustrated work on Jesuit missionaries martyred in the Americas and elsewhere.
