The letters of Philipp Jakob Spener (1635–1705), the founder of Pietism, are first-class sources for ecclesiastical and cultural history, offering as they do an inside into the development and the spread of the Pietist Movement. In addition, they posess unique informational value for many areas of spiritual and social life outside of the religious or church spheres. Since the handwritten material is scattered in archives and libraries all over the world and the letters have come down to us partially in poor condition in old print and for the most part without the addressee, there had been no access to these sources up to now. This edition, the first volume of which was published in 1992 (letters from 1666 to 1674) and is now being continued, is making them available for the first time.
