Title: Aurea Postilla Evangeliorum, dominicalium et festivorum totius anni, pro parochis et concionatoribus, qui hoc in felici seculo, quo quibuslibet Postillatoribus & Authoribus tuto fidi non potest, nec debet, in explicatione Evangeliorum & sermonibus ad populum, certos, syncere catholicos, omnique exceptione maiores duces, libenter sequerentur.

Thomae Aquinatis, jam olim collecta, nunc vero pro commodiore usu in hanc formam redacta & edita a Martino Eisengrein, 1573
