Excerpt

This encyclopedia presents in a condensed and modified form that great body of Protestant learning called the Realencyklop?ie Für protestantische Theologie und Kirche, edited by Professor Albert Hauck, Ph.D., D.Th., D. Jur., the famous church historian of Germany. The German work is the third edition of that religious encyclopedia which was originally edited by the late Professor Johann Jakob Herzog and bore his name popularly as a convenient short title. The late Professor Philip Schaff was requested by his intimate friend Dr. Herzog to adapt the encyclopedia to the American public and this he did. To this combination of German and American scholarship the publishers gave the happy title of The Schaff- Herzog Encyclopœdia of Religious Knowledge. This name has been familiar to thousands of the religious public on both sides of the sea for the past twenty-five years and so has been preserved as the title of this publication, with the prefix "New."
