This publication of the three 15th century Low German versions of the play of Theophilus is based on the revised edition by Robert Petsch; the arrangement of the text makes it possible to read effortlessly in parallel the versions H and S used. Access to the original text is facilitated both by the facing translation, linked to a detailed linguistic and factual commentary, and by the concluding section, which gives an introduction to the history of the material of the play and its literary formation, and in addition presents a literature report on everything known today about the iconographic tradition.
