Controversia et confessio: Quellenedition zur Bekenntnisbildung und Konfessionalisierung (1548-1580)

"Controversia et confessio", is a database on the German protestant literature, (1548-1577/80) which includes currently approximately 1.700 printed old books. It is a collaborative project between the Institute for European History of the Academy of Sciences and the literature in Mainz and the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Mainz.

It is possible to search by author, title, keywords, name of the printers, printed matter and publication year. When a bibliographical record is available in the Verzeichnis der im deutschen Sprachbereich erschienenen Drucke des XVI. Jahrhunderts (VD 16) (A catalogue of the German-speaking Books Printed during the 16th Century) the full record is used to give access to a full -in PDF version- of the book and for specific researches within the fields included in the record. In addition, the bibliographical record available in the catalog of the Herzog August Library in Wolfenbüttel is mentioned and also when the HAB has several copies and editions of the book. Short biographies of the actors of these discussions are also available.
