Digital Karl Barth library

Provides access to a full-text searchable database of Karl Barth's works in German and English including (as of this writing) "the entire corpus of Barth's Gesamtausgabe", Die kirchliche Dogmatik, the Church Dogmatics, and Other Writings. This is an ongoing project and more volumes can be expected to augment the current online collection over time. The great benefit of this electronic collection is its full text searchability, which facilitates a streamlined, "highly sophisticated" level analysis of the texts of Barth's work, unattainable in the print volumes. The volumes can be searched by tables of contents, by document characteristics, or by keyword through its search engine. Viewing the document files requires some adjusting. Once a particular HTML full-text file has been accessed, succeeding and preceding pages are navigated by means of barely discernable "Previous section" / "Next section" links at the top and bottom left and right margins of the page. This is a tremendous resource for students of Neo-Orthodoxy, Barth, or the history of Reformed thought in the 20th century. Alexander Street Press

Digital library of classic Protestant texts

Provides access to a full-text searchable database of primary source Protestant documents covering the 16th and 17th centuries only. The collection includes the theological writings of more than 300 Protestant authors, as well as a wide range of confessional documents, biblical commentaries, polemical treatises, and Bible translations. Published by Alexander Street Press (publishers of the Digital Karl Barth Library), this resource has the same interface and the same searchability options and benefits as the aforementioned work, together with its clunky page advancing interface. This is a great resource for anyone seeking accessible primary source material on mainline Reformation intellectual and clerical leaders of the period. Coverage is broad and ecumenically representative, with one glaring exception: no Anabaptist/ Mennonite representation whatsoever. If you are seeking primary sources in the Reformed, Lutheran, Anglican, Quaker, Unitarian/Socinian, or Arminian traditions, this is a fruitful resource to search. If you are seeking Anabaptist primary sources, you will need to look elsewhere. Alexander Street Press
