Apologia Poetica was Johann Bessler's (aka Orffyreus) account of his life up to Karl, the Landgrave of Hesse's patronage. Bessler believed that from this moment on he would be able to sell his Perpetuum Mobile and found a school for mechanical invention with Christianity-based principles. The book contains a number of mysterious codes which it is believed would reveal the construction of the famous gravity-wheel. Some of these codes have been deciphered and are discussed in some of the author's other books.
