The Contract Is Signed and The Collection is in the ‘Works’

Posted on

Happily the folk at Logos have decided to publish a collection of Huldrych Zwinglis works in English!  It should be appearing in the not too distant future- so look for it (and rest assured, when it appears, I’ll post mention too).

Still happier (from my point of view anyway)- the fact that they’ve chosen to include my little introduction to Zwingli titled ‘Christ Our Captain: An Introduction to Huldrych Zwingli‘ (Quartz Hill Publishing: 2011) in it (as the introductory volume!).

The volume in hand is a small contribution to the relatively small pool of scholarship in the English speaking world on the life and thought of Huldrych Zwingli. Whereas Luther and Calvin are widely known and their works widely available in English, Zwingli has not been so fortunate.

The volume seeks to correct that and the collection from Logos will do so even more!

    Brilliant news, Jim. Rather proud of you. You’re gonna be even more intolerable at SBL now, though… :-p

    Are the entire works of Zwingli actually translated into English? If not, is Logos planning a translation?

      no- and no. zwingli’s works and letters are a whopping 17+ folio volumes (in the corpus reformatorum edition). only a fragment of them have been published in english. thus, the more important are in the collection.
