Overview

This encyclopedia presents in a condensed and modified form that great
body of Protestant learning called the Realencyklopädie 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 Encyclopædia 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."
