After the journeys of the past years to diets and religious discussions, Melanchthon spent the year 1542 almost exclusively in Wittenberg. It was from here that he followed the diets in Speyer and Nuremberg and exchanged information with the persons with whom he corresponded. With great anxiety he observed the Turks in Hungary and Joachim of Brandenburg’s military campaign against them. Many of the letters from Melanchthon’s everyday life show how much influence he had; in addition to numerous letters of recommendation, his involvement in filling several vacancies for positions at schools or positions as clergymen and in founding the University of Königsberg is well documented.

Reviews

Manuela Kahle, Fast Review of Books in Renaissance Intellectual History

This volume is very carefully, accurately and thoughtfully worked out and a delightful step towards the completion of this imposing edition. Every scholar working on Melanchthon and his background has the pleasure to have recourse to this edition but also has to revert back to it and will be measured on the use of it as well, as the publications of this commemorative year of Melanchthon will reveal to us.

Kestutis Daugirdas, Blätter für pfälzische Kirchengeschichte und religiöse Volkskunde

Zusammen mit dem Regestenband 3 bildet der Textband 11 eine vorzügliche Ausgangsbasis für alle, die an dem tieferen Kennenlernen der frühneuzeitlichen Abläufe [...] im Allgemeinen und der bildungspolitischen Rolle Melanchthons im Besonderen interessiert sind.

Timothy J. Wengert, The Sixteenth Century Journal

»It is next to impossible to improve upon what has to be one of the best editions of a sixteenth-century figure ever produced.«

»Insofern gelingt es den Verantwortlichen des Projekts zur Herausgabe der Melanchton-Korrespondenz, Textbände auf höchstem editorischen Niveau vorzulegen und im Verbund mit den modernsten Rechercheoptionen im Internet ein vorbildliches Arbeitsinstrument zu bieten.«
