In the 16th century, Christian scholars became increasingly interested in studying Hebrew grammar and Jewish interpretation in order to clarify biblical texts in their original language. This Kalendrium is a product of that interest. An exposition of Jewish calendrical computations in Latin and Hebrew, it includes astronomical woodcuts and initials of various sizes, probably by Hans Holbein the Younger.
