Library Subscribes to Luthers Werke

Following our trial subscription in May, Fuller Libraries have added The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke to our collection of electronic resources.

Luther's_Werke

The online version of The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is a complete collection of Luther’s writings. It is one of the largest editions of any individual author ever to have been created. This monumental work, of which the first volume was published in 1883, consists over 117 quarto volumes and is now published in full. Luthers Werke provides an indispensable historical-critical tool for theologians, historians, linguists and literary critics carrying out research into Luther’s life and work.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) is one of the central figures in the development of European cultural and intellectual history. This is as a result of not only his theological influence but also his contribution to the development of New High German.

The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is published in electronic form by ProQuest with the co-operation and support of the publishers Hermann Böhlaus Nachfolger Weimar GmbH & Co.

Twentieth Century Religious Thought: Month-Long Trial

20thcentrelthought_banner

We are pleased to announce a month-long trial to Twentieth Century Religious Thought, a repository for the essential works and archival materials documenting religious thinking in the 20th century.  Access is available through March 25, 2015.

Your feedback is very important to us, as our collection development decisions are driven by feedback from faculty, students, and staff.

Twentieth Century Religious Thought offers access to the influential works of worldwide religious thinkers from the 20th century such as Hans Urs von Baltasar, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Rudolf Bultmann, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Adolf von Harnack, Henri de Lubac, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Dorothee Sölle, and more. Included are 16 volumes of the English edition of the Dietrich Bonhoeffer Works Series (DBWE) and the complete 17-volume German edition of Dietrich Bonhoeffer Werke (DBW). Supporting religious scholarship, this database currently has over 100,000 pages of material exploring key concepts such as ethics, doctrine, and truth across religions.
