Description:
Text of a song entitled "Victory Hymn of a Straussian," written in reaction to the appointment of theologian David Friedrich Strauss to the University of Zurich in 1839. The text, in Swiss German, reads : "Äh e chli heidnisch / Möchtid mer werde / Chönntid dänn türggisch / Läben uf Erde! / Ach e chli jüdisch / Möchtid mer sÿ / Swärid dänn gwüß / Käni Zinsli meh chlÿ!" In English, the text reads : "Oh, a bit heathen / We want to become / We could then like the Turkish (Muslims) / Live on Earth! / Oh, a bit Jewish / We want to be / Then certainly / No more would any interest (from lending money) be small!"
