Abstract

The Reformed playwright Sixt Birck composed during the 1530’s, during his appointment as Rektor des Pädagogiums in Basel, sev-eral Biblical dramas in German to be represented before the city public. Later Birck went back to his native Augsburg as Rektor des Gymnasiums St. Anna and translated his dramas in Latin. A 1544 printed copy of his Latin Judith, presumably from the Fugger library, entered the archives of the Munich Jesuit college, founded in 1559. The copy has been carefully corrected to be performed on Jesuit stage, giving us a unique insight on the political and pedagogical meanings of college theatre, and on the reuse of Protestant dramas by the stronger religious enemies of the Reformation.
