Preparation of an annotated English translation of the correspondence of Heinrich Melchior Muhlenberg (1711-1787), the patriarch of American Lutheranism and an important figure in early Pennsylvania history. (36 months)

The purpose of this project is to publish an annotated English translation of the correspondence of Heinrich Melchior Muhlenberg, the patriarch of American Lutheranism. This project continues the work of John W. Kleiner and Helmut T. Lehmann, now deceased, who completed the English-language edition of Muhlenberg's correspondence from 1740 to 1752. The great diversity of interests and correspondents makes the remaining Muhlenberg letters an important project for researchers of many different humanities fields: theology, history, folklore, philology, philosophy, geography, law, and social and political science. An editorial board of scholars distinguished in religious studies, history, and German will complete the translation; Picton Press has expressed formal interest in publishing the remainder of the series. We are requesting funding in this application for Volumes 3, 4, 5, and 6.
