A broadside that announces a public examination in theology sponsored by Dom Joannis Forsbach Agrippinatis on the fifteen channels of divine grace. The lower half of the broadside has fifteen paragraphs that perhaps elaborate on the "fifteen channels." The center illustration has a coat of arms with a fleur de lis and a phoca marinus. Presumably in top stands the Virgin Mary and the Christ child.
