Cochlaeus Work On-Line

March 24, 2009

Further to my last post about the BSB digitization project, one may recall an informal debate that I conducted with Dave Armstrong last January on the issue of a spurious quotation attributed to Luther. The full work of that slanderer Cochlaeus, from which the quotation originated, has been digitized and is available freely on-line, though one will have to navigate some German menus to download it (link).

Good News for Lutherophiles

March 24, 2009

At least, I think it is good news. Todd at Historical Theoblogy has a report on a digitization project that aims to digitize 100,000 volumes: all the extant volumes that were published in Germany (well, in the German-speaking lands) in the 16th century (link to report). Obviously, a significant percentage of these works will be German or Latin. Nevertheless, it represents a treasure trove, especially for those interested in things related to Martin Luther.

Enjoy!
