Recently Purchased: Luther's Works (The Works of Martin Luther)

Mar 29, 2017

Following a trial period, the Library has been able to purchase a subscription to "The Works of Martin Luther," an online version of Luther's Works produced by Intelex Past Masters. We were also able to work with Intelex to acquire alumni/ae access.

This is the electronic version of the red, hardcover print version of Luther's Works (Volumes 1-55) shelved in the Reference Collection.

"The 55-volume set of Luther’s Works, a monumental translation project published jointly by Fortress Press and Concordia Publishing House in 1957, is singular in its value to church historians, Luther scholars, and Christians. The Works of Martin Luther will provide the reader with a Luther resource unrivaled in accessibility and convenience. Luther’s Works in digital format is indispensable for studies of Luther and invaluable to theologians. As with all Past Masters titles, The Works of Martin Luther titles reproduce definitive print editions in highest quality electronic form. All of the print apparatus is included and is fully searchable. Full-text searching may be made within any single volume, across an entire collection, or across all titles."

Revival of the Dutch Cataloging Project
