Cambridge University Library, the Divinity Faculty Library, and ebooks@cambridge have collaborated to make accessible the Digital Karl Barth Library here:
The Library features the entire corpus of Barth’s Gesamtausgabe. Published under the TVZ imprint, this definitive edition of Barth’s works in German currently comprises more than 40 volumes of sermons, letters, lectures, conversations, and academic writings. Also slated for inclusion in The Digital Karl Barth Library is Barth’s magnum opus, the 14-volume Kirchliche Dogmatik.
Every document in The Digital Karl Barth Library is hand-keyed and features metadata tagging specifically designed to meet the research needs of religious-studies scholars. The same dedication to scholarly research has guided the development of the search and presentation platform, which enables users to perform highly sophisticated searches and to view, organize, and analyze results with extraordinary speed and precision. For example, researchers can return comprehensive, accurate results in seconds for the following kinds of queries:
- Find all references to Hitler in Barth’s letters;
- In Barth’s academic writings, identify words that occur most frequently in close proximity with the keyword λογος;
- Locate instances where Barth discusses tribulation and suffering in his sermons;
- Searching all Barth’s works, find all citations of Romans, chapter one.
