Soli Deo Gloria...
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.

ICLnet first met Reverend Bob in connection with his work on Project Wittenberg. Bob is an avid scholar in the Lutheran tradition and has done much to increase that interest amongst the internet community. A bibliography of his published works is available on his home page (noted below). Bob's vision is to use networking as a "highway of light" to promote the Lord's work. He is the Christian who forever signs his e-mail notes, "Peace"
