The New Testament presented here is an example of those given to prisoners of war from Pope Pius XII in 1945-1946.
The title page says it was translated and explained by P. Johann Perk. It also identifies the publisher at the bottom of the page.
The stamp on the inside cover gives the information that this book is a present from Pope Pius XII to prisoners of war with the assistance of Swiss Catholics in Freiburg, Switzerland.
Further information that is handwritten in this volume indicates that it was a gift bestowed on war captives (the prisoners of war) in the Rouille/Vienne region of France in 1945-1946. It contains a signature of the Stud Council on January 9, 1946.
In the middle of the volume is a pressed Edelweiss flower, which is highly connected to Germany. It is not clear what the significance of the flower is.
The New Testament is in very good condition and is a highly unusual acquisition to the Papal Artifacts Collection. It provides us with a window into the papacy of Pope Pius XII that included providing this type of assistance to prisoners of war.
