The commentary offers explanations necessary for understanding the texts. Above all, named persons, book titles, citations, and facts are identified and documented.

Persons are presented in short biograms whose length reflects the person’s significance for Spener’s correspondence. As a rule, the addressees are portrayed with the first letter sent to them. All other persons are described at their first appearance in the letter text.
