Summary/Abstract: The book Barlaam et Josaphat is dealing with an old story with its roots in the Orient, which basically is a Christian tale, or a Christian version, of the history of Buddha. The book is a incunabulum hosted in the Brukenthal Library collection. Taking into consideration that the Brukenthal Library enriched itself thanks to different private or former public collection, it is not a surprise to notice that the book has an ownership mark, that of Albert Huet, one of the leading political as well as cultural figure of the 16th century Sibiu.
