What would it take to make an edition of Luther's works popular today? Exploring this question, Martin Keßler's study highlights two unknown editorial projects, the »Little Weimar Edition of Luther's Works« and »Luther's Authentic Works«, and also traces the beginnings of Kurt Aland's »Luther deutsch«, one of the most widespread editions of post-war Germany, back to the year 1942.
