An alphabet named Church Text is shown in Studies in Pen Art (1914) by W.E. Dennis. Appears to be modeled after Bradley (Extended) and/or one of its many copies (some glyphs like ‘aGRU’ are more similar to Saint John).
Phototype versions are shown in Lettergraphics’ 1968 catalog as Germa and in the Solotype catalog (1992) as Germania.
Digitized by James Fordyce as Deutsch Gothic in 1994, “based upon an old German gothic alphabet.” In 1998/2002, Dieter Steffmann extended the character set, added a shaded style, and released his version as Germania.
