A 15th-16th century prayer book from Bavaria provides valuable information concerning late medieval lay prayers, about which little is known. The book was included in a file of household papers from a Bavarian aristocrat, Argula von Grumbach. The collection includes nine prayers, addressed to Mary, one's personal angel, one's own twelfth apostle, and St. Erasmus. St. Erasmus was appealed to for help with pains from kidney stones and with unhappy thoughts. The German text of the prayers is included with an English translation.
