RRP Database

The database RRP (Reformation Readings of Paul) intends to become the central repository of commentaries on the Pauline Epistles that were published in Latin between 1520 and 1600. The collection strategy is modular: the project starts with collecting the commentaries published within the territory of today’s Switzerland (mainly Basel, Geneva and Zurich), expands this to the broader geographical context of the Swiss Reformation (Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Tübingen, Freiburg i.Br., Constance, Lyon), and adds then further geographical areas according to the needs and interests of the project members. The database includes also historical introductions to Paul and his epistles, as well as paratexts (such as chronological tables, dedication letters, and indexes) in order to get an embracing picture of how Paul was read and taught in the 16th century.
