(Augsburg): (Heinrich Steiner.), 1528. In later half vellum binding. 58 p.
In the spring of 1528, Otto von Pack of Saxony-Meissen, reported to Philipp, the Count of Hessen that the previous year Ferdinand I and the Catholic electorates and bishops of the German-Roman Empire had formed an alliance in Boroszló. According to the agreement, the lords would support Ferdinand in gaining the throne of Hungary, and thus strengthen the attack on the German princes who supported the Reformation and oblige them to hand over to them Luther and the priests following the new trend. In response, as a representative of Philipp, Pack also held negotiations with Szapolyai in Hungary. It later became clear to Protestant princes demanding an explanation from the supposed contracting parties that the news of the alliance was a fabrication and that the document presented by the Pack was false. Packt was eventually sentenced to death in the Netherlands for his fraud. In addition to the exchange of letters between George and Philip, the publication contains the text of the fabricated treaty, as well as several letters of Catholic ecclesiastical and secular dignity mentioned in it, in which the authenticity of the treaty is refuted.
