Welcome to Project Wittenberg's Web Site!
Project Wittenberg is home to works by and about Martin Luther and other
Lutherans. Here you will find all manner of texts from short quotations
to commentaries, hymns to statements of faith, theological treatises to
biographies, and links to other places where words and images from the
history of Lutheranism live.
Project Wittenberg is the first step towards an international electronic
library of Lutheranism. As such, we are always adding and changing our
sites. This site contains Project Wittenberg texts in final form. For the
latest versions of our texts, many of which are still being assembled
and refined, drop in at Project Wittenberg's Electronic Lutheran Web.
