Happy G.W. Locher Day

April 29, 1911Gottfried W. Locher was born. His contributions to the field of Reformation studies were so influential that when he was honored with a Festschrift, it took two volumes to house all the essays that were requested. Indeed, in 1992 and 1993 the annual publications of Zwingliana were devoted to this two part Festschrift for Locher.   Volume one is available here and volume two here.   His complete bibliography, which is the last entry of the FS, is here.

The world received a real gift back in 1911. And those interested in the Swiss Reformation not only need to be familiar with his name, they need to be thoroughly acquainted with his work.  Overlooking it would be as big a mistake as overlooking Bultmann’s contributions to New Testament studies and von Rad’s contributions to Old Testament research.
