An edition requires principles that underlie the work process and define the individual processing steps. The principles of the Spenerbriefe edition are recorded as editorial preliminary remarks in the first volumes of each module and are reproduced here.
Quite often it has to be determined to whom Ph. J. Spener addresses his letter. For a receivers identification necessary steps and the corresponding representation in the edition we have here put together. You will also find overviews of the Abbreviations and Siglen used in the edition and the Provenience of the manuscripts.
The “key to the contemporary collections of Ph. J. Spener’s reservations and letters” attached to the respective volumes in the appendix we have here in a synopsis.
