Trubar's Catechismus, first page

Catechismus in der windischenn Sprach or shortly Catechismus (Catechism, also known as Katekizem v slovenskem jeziku or shortly Katekizem in modern Slovene), is a book written by the Slovene Protestant preacher Primož Trubar in 1550.[1] Along with Trubar's 1550 book, Abecedarium (Abecedary), Catechismus was the first book published in Slovene.[1] Catechismus was written and published in German territory while Trubar was in hiding.[1] Catechismus served as part of a foundation of the establishment of a national identity for Slovenes.[1]

Catechismus was released in October 2009 for the first time in modern Slovene. This scholarly edition includes both the Trubar-era Slovene and a translation into modern Slovene with scholarly notes. Similarly, Abecedarium was published in October 2008, the other "first" Slovene book. The "Pridiga o veri" (Sermon on Faith) from Catechismus is available in Slovene, English, German, and Esperanto. Samples of these important works are at the website of the Trubar Forum [1].

A phrase from Cathecismus, Stati inu Obstati ("To Stand and Withstand"),[2] is inscribed on the Slovenian 1 euro coin and has also been the slogan of the former Slovenian metropolitan archbishop Franc Rode.[3][4]
