The Latin Works and The Correspondence of Huldreich Zwingli, vol. 1
“This is the gospel, that sins are remitted in the name of Christ; and no heart ever received tidings more glad.” Huldrych Zwingli's contribution to the Reformation may have been just as important as Luther and Calvin's, yet many still don't know much about him, let alone read his powerful works. Zwingli preached against ecclesial corruption, fasting, the requirement of celibacy on the clergy, the veneration of saints, excommunication, and more—setting the stage for the Swiss Reformation.
The three volumes in The Latin Works and The Correspondence of Huldreich Zwingli contain the English translations of some of Zwingli's most important letters, sermons, poems, tracts, and more. Each entry contains an introduction to the work and the editors have provided helpful notes. Volume one also includes "The Original Life of Zwingli," a short biography written in 1521 by Oswald Myconius—the first biography of Zwingli to be written.

Praise for the Print Edition
A translation of Zwingli's works, to be placed alongside of the works of Luther and Calvin, is a boon to English readers who would acquaint themselves with the secret of this great reformer's power.
The editor's contribution shows that meticulous care in details which we have learned to expect from Dr. Jackson. It is a matter of congratulation that we are now to have in English a worthy presentation of the writings of a man whose appeal to the modern spirit is as direct as Luther's and is often much more in the temper of our approach to the problems not only of practical religion but of national honor.
