Intended as a first effort at filling a gap that has long existed in the bibliographical control of Lutheran materials in English, this work is designed to provide a basic bibliography of books, dissertations, and pamphlets that illuminate world Lutheranism since 1580. 1580 was chosen as terminus a quo because it was the date of publication of theBook of Concord, which defined Lutheranism over and against other confessional movements of the Reformation era. International in scope, this volume covers material relating to the Lutheran churches over six continents. Most of the works are historical, biographical, or sociological. Historical works include the history of theology as well as of institutions. Biographical works include lay persons as well as clergy, the relatively unknown as well as the famous. Citations have been verified either personally by the author or by utilizing the bibliographical information in the OCLC system. Brief annotations are used for some works to explain the contents (where these are not clear from the title) or to provide useful information that is otherwise not apparent, such as the original titles of translated works. This volume is unique in its comprehensiveness; it is not limited to scholarly works but includes select popular and semi-popular works where they provide the only information available on a subject. Pamphlets are included when they provide unique information.
