Overview

For more than a century, the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge has set the standard for biblical and theological reference works. Over a period of nearly four decades, nearly 100 editors and more than 600 scholars under the editorship of Philip Schaff collaborated to write the most detailed and comprehensive biblical and theological encyclopedia in the English language.

Using the Realencyklopädie für protestantische Theologie und Kirche, edited by Johann Jakob Herzog, as its model, Philip Schaff aims to give readers “all the information needed to pursue any subject to its roots.” For the first time in this third edition, Schaff successfully brought together into a singular reference work the most important scholarship from biblical studies, historical and doctrinal theology, archaeology, geography, church history, patristics, and comparative religion. The resulting work ranks among the best-selling and most-cited Christian reference materials, and has been the first stop for pastors, teachers, parents, students, and scholars for more than a century.

With your digital library, you can get even more out of this massive reference work! Searches in Logos will pull from articles and entries in the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, and all scripture references within the encyclopedia link directly to your Greek and Hebrew texts and English translations. What’s more, the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge provides secondary sources for many of the primary texts already in your digital library, giving you instant access to secondary literature, definitions, and bibliographic materials for your research projects, sermon preparation, and Bible study. The value of your entire library will be enhanced by the digital version of one of the largest biblical and theological reference works ever published!

Key Features

  • Bibliographical material included for each entry

Praise for the Print Edition

Indispensable . . . the best reference work in the entire field.

Homiletic Review

. . .a theological library in itself.

Westminster Theological Journal

The usefulness of this encyclopedia is to be found in its comprehensiveness. No extant work can match this. It is also particularly strong in biography, where it will be found an invaluable aid to investigation into the lives of the worthies of the past.

Bibliotheca Sacra

This work is not a mere reprint. It is enlarged to nearly three times the size. . . . It includes a full line of Bible Dictionary articles, but includes much more—histories of religions and of religious denominations and societies and movements and work, articles on religious organization and pedagogy, the biographies of men, living and dead . . . discussions of doctrine and writings, data of comparative religion. . . . The makeup of these volumes is excellent, and the mechanical work fine.
