Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature, vols. 1–10

Format: Digital
, 1891–1894


From the author of Strong’s Concordance and the result of the culminating efforts of two hundred editors, Logos is pleased to offer these ten volumes of the 12-volume Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature—one of the largest Bible reference works ever published in the English language. These ten volumes consist of over ten thousand pages of all-encompassing research on Christianity. These volumes contain detailed articles on biblical, historical, and theological topics, including sixteen pages on the Tower of Babel, fifteen pages on David, thirty-three pages on marriage, and the longest article on Mormonism ever to appear in a reference work—before or since.

Described as the most gigantic literary enterprise of its age, the Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature accumulates knowledge of all previous biblical scholarship at the time it was written. It includes thousands of bibliographic articles on individuals whose lives appear in no other reference work and nowhere else in print.

The Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Literature is a vital tool for historians of American Christianity, as well as for scholars attempting to understand the nineteenth century origins of current topics in biblical and theological studies.

Praise for the Print Edition

The work covers a wide range [of topics], and is by no means confined to matters exclusively biblical, theological, and ecclesiastical, but embraces a large body of correlated matter belonging to general literature in all its various departments.

Harper’s Magazine

One of the most exhaustive encyclopedias ever produced in the English language. Covers virtually every field of religious knowledge in its 31,000 articles . . . . and still of great value today. Few researchers will be disappointed by what they find in this work.

About the Editors

John McLintock was born in Philadelphia in 1814. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1836. He served as a professor of mathematics at Dickinson College from 1840 to 1848. From 1848 to 1856, he became editor of the Methodist Quarterly Review, and for a time, served as pastor of St. Paul’s Methodist Church of New York City. He was also instrumental in the founding of Drew Theological Seminary, and served as its first professor and president. Both his pastoral pursuits and his scholarly ambitions made him a key figure in nineteenth century American Methodism. John McLintock died in 1870.

James Strong was born in 1822, and graduated from Wesleyan University in 1844. He became a professor of ancient languages at Troy University, and published multiple works on the harmony of the Gospels and on the Greek text of the New Testament. In 1861, he became Professor of Exegetical Theology at Drew University, where he remained for twenty-seven years.

Strong’s famous Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible first appeared in 1890 and has remained in print ever since. The numbering system he devised has made the original languages available to English-only Bible readers. Strong also edited the volumes on Daniel and Esther in Lange's Commentary and served on the American Bible Revision Committee. He died in 1894.
