Emblemata Sacra by Bernard Sellius Noviomagus, known above all in the 1613 edition published by Michiel Colin in Amsterdam, has long puzzled bibliographers. This article establishes Sellius's identity, describes his brief life and examines his spirituality. It reconstructs the publishing history of his single work through its three editions (Raphelengius 1593 and Colin 1613 and 1617) and assesses his achievements as a poet. The text of Emblemata Sacra, Sellius's Latin heading and epigrams accompanying Pieter van der Borcht's illustrations of scenes from the Bible, is reproduced in the Appendix with notes and an English translation.
