Romansch Bible

The Romansch language is the fourth language of Switzerland, after German, French and Italian, but now has only a limited number of speakers in the Engadine area. Three dialects still survive, one of which is Oberland and this is the dialect of the Bible on display. About the only common use of the language name today is in the name of the Swiss Symphony Orchestra: "Orchestre de la Suisse Romande".
