New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Journal of Ecumenical Studies.

3706639354_6916bc3278_z

From the journal website:

“The Journal of Ecumenical Studies (JES) was founded by Arlene and Leonard Swidler in 1964 as the first peer-reviewed journal in the field of interreligious dialogue. Born out of the ecumenical spirit of Vatican II, JES began with an emphasis on dialogue among diverse Christian traditions. Its focus quickly broadened to Christian-Jewish dialogue and soon thereafter to interchange among a wide array of religious traditions. After 50 years, JES continues as the premier publisher of scholarly articles in the field of dialogue across lines of religious difference.

“From the 1960s until today, JES has helped to create and build an international forum for interreligious scholarship. Together with the outreach work of the Dialogue Institute, it continues to support, stimulate, and broaden the community of scholars and activists engaged in interreligious work throughout the world.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 50 (2015) to present.

Four of my father’s wives lived at Provo during my childhood, a situation particularly fortunate for the swarm of Taylor kids. Santa Claus came twice to us, instead of just the single time he visited homes of those unfortunates whose fathers had only one wife.  We were taught how blessed we were, to be among the very last to be privileged to live the fullness of the gospel; and here was a tangible evidence.

Digital Karl Barth Library

Cambridge University Library, the Divinity Faculty Library, and ebooks@cambridge have collaborated to make accessible the Digital Karl Barth Library here:

http://ezproxy.lib.cam.ac.uk:2048/login?url=http://bart.alexanderstreet.com

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.
