Famous compilation of Slovak spiritual lyrics, which was edited for the first time in 1636 in Levoca by Jiri Tranovsky “Tranoscius”, a Moravian Evangelic minister, who was instrumental in the spread of the Lutheran ideas through Slovakia, Moravia, and Silesia. His most important and most famous work was Cithara Sanctorum (“Lyre of the Saints”), written in Czech, which appeared in 1636 in Levoča (Lőcse). This latter volume has formed the basis of Czech and Slovak Lutheran hymnody to the present day. Třanovský’s hymnbook together with the Bible of Kralice (also in Czech) became the cornerstones of the Slovak Reformation.
