Post-Reformation Digital Library

The Post-Reformation Digital Library ( spans publicly-accessible collections from major research libraries, independent scholarly initiatives, and corporate documentation projects. With the proliferation of digital books scattered across various places on the web, it can be difficult for the individual scholar to find or keep track of all the new content that is appearing daily. PRDL is a collaborative effort to organize this content for scholars of early modern theology.

The core of the PRDL project involves the organization of thousands of documents available in digital form from select digital libraries from Europe and North America, which are beginning to make digitized forms of their holdings available to the public. The project covers the work of hundreds of authors from a wide variety of theological, philosophical, and ecclesiastical traditions.

Topics covered are shown below.
