The Luther Bible Online
My colleague, Rev. Benjamin Mayes, pointed this fascinating web site out to me. He wrote, "Here’s the entire 1545 Luther-Bibel online, with Luther’s marginal
notes and the original illustrations. But wait, there’s more! The text
is in clean Roman typeface."
What is this? Beginning with the publication of his so-called "September Testament" in 1522, the translation of the New Testament that Luther prepared while at the Wartburg Castle in "exile," he spent the rest of his career working on the translation of the Bible. The last edition to be printed in Luther’s lifetime was in 1545. This web site provides the entire text in Roman letters, the type of characters we are used to in our day.
