Studium Excitare: A Worthy Project


You'll definitely want to visit
Studium Excitare, an online journal whose spiritual epicenter is Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minn. Stud. Exc. publishes translations from the Lutheran Fathers' German and Latin works, including such 17th-century greats as David Hollaz and late-19th/early-20th century giants of North American Lutheranism K. Georg Stöckhardt, G. Adolf T. F. Hönecke. The translations are on the whole quite well done, with very little Deunglish and overly Latinate English, which makes the production of these pieces eminently usable. The journal is certainly doing its part to raise the profile of often long-forgotten figures who have important things to say to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in North America today.

To the editors of and contributors to Studium Excitare: Well done!

Jon,

I agree. Thank you for bringing this resources to my attention. The first article that I read, "So What Actually is a Lutheran?" by Edward F. Moldehnke (translated by Nathaniel Biebert) was very interesting. I look forward to browsing further.
