Featured Resource: New 1567 Hymnal Acquisition


The Richard C. Kessler Reformation Collection recently added a beautiful 1567 Lutheran hymnal, Martin Luther’s Geistliche Lieder. Joseph Klug printed the first collection of hymns that Luther prepared for congregational use in Wittenberg in 1529. This work was revised and reprinted multiple times. This 1567 edition is bound in black morocco by Hans Apser, with gilt tooling and a dark green leather intarsia. The Pitts copy has the bookplate of Gaspard Ernest Stroehlin (1844-1907), a Swiss minister and professor at the University of Geneva.

You can work with this and other unique works of the Kessler Collection in the Pitts Theology Library’s Special Collections. For more information, contact a Reference Librarian.
