Summary/Abstract: The Radziwiłł family contributed a lot to the history of Polish translations of The Holy Bible.Mikołaj “Czarny” held a patronage over the translation of the so called Brześć Bible in the 16th century,which was consolidated in a poem for a family crest and dedication to Zygmunt August. In the17th century The Radziwiłł Bible was still appreciated in Birże. Surroundings, though, when in needof a reedition, prince Krzysztof held a patronage over the edition which was published in Gdańsk in1632. In the beginning, a dedication to Władysław IV signed by Radziwiłł was inserted. However, itturns out that the manuscript included an original version addressed to Zygmunt III Waza. A comparisonof a manuscript and printed dedication shows many differences deriving from the change ofan addresse. The acts of synods reveal not only difficulties in selling a new translation, but also theattachment to a literary publishing frame of Brześć Bible.
