Jaroslav Pelikan (1923-2006): editor of Luther's Works; he later converted to Orthodoxy

Regular contributor Ben made me aware of this today, to my delight. Easier access to these works without having to put out hundreds of dollars (that I certainly don't have: I buy virtually all of my books used) is a great blessing. If I am doing some Luther research and don't have the particular volume of "LW" (I did -- almost miraculously -- manage to find 13 volumes for just a few bucks each at a used sale a few years back) referred to, then at least I can do a little word search to find possible relevant references. Here they are:

Volume 32: Career of the Reformer II

Volume 33: Career of the Reformer III

Volume 34: Career of the Reformer IV

Volume 35: Word and Sacrament I

Volume 36: Word and Sacrament II

Volume 37: Word and Sacrament III

Volume 39: Church and Ministry I

Volume 40: Church and Ministry II

Volume 41: Church and Ministry III

Volume 43: Devotional Writings II

Volume 44: Christian in Society I

Volume 45: Christian in Society II

Volume 49: Letters II

Volume 50: Letters III

Volume 51: Sermons I

Volume 53: Liturgy and Hymns

Volume 54: Table Talk

Volume 55: Index

By a happy coincidence, the 13 volumes I have (volumes 1-4, 7, 13, 22-24, 26-27, 40, 45) are not duplicated in the above volumes (except for volumes 40, 45). Additionally, volumes 1, 3, 9, 12, 13, 31, 36, 40, and 51 are available online in full text (see my Luther & Lutheranism page) so I now have full access to 18 volumes and partial access to 14 more, for a total of 32 out of the 55 volumes (58%) .
