The first volume is available and the second is forthcoming. It’s a bilingual Latin-German edition:
Loci praecipui theologici nunc denuo cura et diligentia Summa recogniti multisque in locis copiose illustrati 1559, by Philipp Melanchthon
Philipp Melanchthons »Loci praecipui theologici« in der Letztfassung von 1559 sind die reife Summe seines theologischen Schaffens. Gemeinsam mit der »Institutio« Johannes Calvins sind sie die wirkmächtigste reformatorische Dogmatik. Sie liegen nun erstmals ins Deutsche übersetzt in einer lateinisch-deutschen Ausgabe im ersten Teilband vor.
Die philologische Seite der Übersetzung lag bei dem Basler Altphilologen Peter Litwan unter Assistenz der Altphilologin Florence Becher-Häusermann. Die theologische Redaktion hatte Sven Grosse, Professor für Historische und Systematische Theologie an der Staatsunabhängigen Theologischen Hochschule Basel. Die Ausgabe ist auf zwei Bände angelegt.
Der 2. Band der Loci erscheint im Juli 2020.
What a State that must be…
The state Senate has approved a bill designed to make it clear that bestiality is illegal in Louisiana. A law on the books prohibits “crimes against nature,” but it also outlaws so-called sodomy and was ruled unconstitutional in 2003. New Orleans Senator JP Morrell says it’s important that the state has a way to arrest someone for having sex with animals. He told fellow lawmakers, “God forbid you vote against this bill, good luck explaining it.” Ten senators did vote against it. Click here for a list of state senators who voted for and against the bill which “creates the crime of sexual abuse of an animal.”

May death descend on them, may they go down alive to Sheol, since evil shares their home with them — (Ps. 55:15)
Erase them from the book of life, do not enroll them among the upright. — (Ps. 69:28)
Or if the big guns are needed-
God, break the teeth in their mouths, snap off the fangs of these young lions, Yahweh. May they drain away like water running to the sewer, may they wither like trampled grass, like the slug that melts as it moves or a still-born child that never sees the sun. — (Ps. 58:6-8)
Just in case the occasion should arise when such prayers should be needed. You’re welcome.
