ProQuest Alexander Street Digital Library of Classic Protestant Texts

Vendor: ProQuest

The Digital Library of Classic Protestant Texts brings together an enormous collection of Christian texts from the Reformation and post-Reformation eras.

This dynamic resource is sure to have a similar impact upon theological scholarship in the 21st century.

A uniquely exhaustive resource for historians, theologians, political scientists, and sociologists studying the religious and social upheavals of the 16th and 17th centuries, the CPT will give researchers immediate, Web-based access to hundreds of often hard-to-find works, never before published in a single collection. The texts are indexed and marked up to the highest quality digital standards, giving easy access to the full range of authors whose writings shaped and defined the Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, and Anabaptist traditions.

With more than 1,200 volumes in all, the CPT is the largest collection of Protestant writings ever assembled, and the only such searchable electronic resource. Complementing the theological writings is an extensive selection of confessional documents, biblical commentaries, polemical treatises, catechisms, and liturgical works.
