On trial: Brill’s New Pauly Supplements Online II and Brill’s World Council of Churches Online: World War II Era Records

June 7, 2016 – 12:28 pm

We have two Brill resources on trial until 6 July. Two!!

Brill’s New Pauly Supplements Online II – brings together seven reference volumes for study of the Ancient World and its reception in later centuries. Two reception volumes focus on the Renaissance and Enlightenment periods, while the volume about the reception of historical figures complements that about figures from mythology (vol. 4). The other four volumes are about Antiquity itself – including Early and Late Antiquity.

World Council of Churches Online: World War II Era Records – a collection of documents from a section of the World Council of Churches Archives, dealing with Germany and fifteen other countries during the period 1932-1957. Documents include: newspapers, press clippings, press releases, telegrams, correspondence, minutes, manuscripts and personal notes. The collection includes correspondence and personal letters of such notable individuals as Dietrich Bonhoeffer, George Bell, Hans Schönfeld, Karl Barth, James McDonald, Georges Casalis, Adolf Freudenberg, Martin Niemöller, Otto Dibelius, Gerhart Riegner, Marc Boegner, and Willem Adolf Visser ‘t Hooft. The archives document not only the issues and events of the War, but also the beginning years of the World Council of Churches.
