PREFACE

THE first collector, editor and publisher of the works of
Huldreich Zwingli was his scholarly and devoted son-
in-law, Rudolf Gualther, who married his daughter Regula,
became pastor of St. Peter's in Zurich in 1542 and succeeded
BulHnger as antistes in 1575. He translated more than
thirty of Zwingli's German treatises into Latin, which gave
them a much wider constituency. These translations, along
with the works originally in Latin, he brought out in 1545
and prefixed to the three volumes in folio an elaborate
Apologia pro Zuinglio, which was also separately published.
To Gualther' s three volumes a.fourth was added, ^ consisting
of biblical annotations furnished by Leo Jud and Kaspar
Megander, either directly from their notes of Zwingli's

edition was reprinted in 1581.^

The third edition is the one familiar to all modem students
of Zwingli, and which has well served them for many years.
It was collected and edited by Melchior Schuler and
Johannes Schtilthess. ^ It separates the Latin from the

vi Preface

The fourth edition ' is that now appearing. It was pro-
jected by two Swiss scholars who had paid particular atten-
tion to the Reformation in that country, Emil Egli, profes-
sor of history in the university of Zurich, and Georg Finsler,
teacher of religion in the gymnasium of Basel. It has been
incorporated into the Corpus Reformatorum as Volumes
LXXXVIII. and successors, and so Zwingli takes his place
in this authoritative collection next to Melanchthon and
Calvin. The edition was long preparing and is a great
improvement upon its predecessor. It began to appear in
parts in the fall of 1903. With the second volimie a dif-
ferent publisher begins his work, but otherwise there was no
change. That was soon to come. EgH died on December
31, 1908, within eight days of his sixty-second birthday.
His successor is Walther Kohler, who also succeeded him in
the university.

The last part of the second volimie appeared in October
1898. The next part to appear was the first of the seventh
volume, for very wisely it was determined to do as Schuler
and Schulthess did and interrupt the succession of the trea-
tises with a portion of the letters to and by ZwingU. For
the collection of these letters Egli had especially exerted him-
self and had much increased their nimiber by diligent search
on every hand, both in and out of Switzerland. It would
have been a particular delight for him to have seen his
labours in print, but it was not to be.

fills volumes seven and eight, and in the new edition the same
numbers will be given to them. Volume seven was finished
on December 31, 19 10.' Another change in the order of
publication was made, and now volume three is appearing
alternately with volume eight. Nothing seems to be lacking
to give this edition scholarly completeness. Each of its
contents is provided with a special introduction; it is then
studied philologically and bibliographically, and in the case
of the German treatises, because of the difficulty of reading
the Swiss German, provided with a glossary at the foot of
the page. Besides, each treatise has adequate notes giving
information on all appropriate points. The contents are
arranged chronologically. All of these editions are found in
the library of Union Theological Seminary, in New York
City.

Most of the translations which appear in this volume were
made years ago from the Schuler and Schulthess text for the
publication I then contemplated, but circumstances, among
which was the fact that there had been announced a new edi-
tion of the originals, led me to postpone the enterprise and
then I became absorbed in other work and could not attend
to it. When I was at liberty to do so the new edition had
made considerable progress. Happily the translators were

willing to revise their translations with the new text in hand.
These translators are Mr. Henry Preble of New York City,
who has done all the Latin treatises, and Lawrence A.
McLouth, Professor of German, New York University, and
Walter Lichtenstein, Ph.D., librarian of Northwestern
University, who have made the renderings from the German.

When the present volume was undertaken, I asked per-
mission of the editors and publishers to be allowed to use
such portion of their notes and introductions as suited my
purpose. They have generously given me permission and
so my readers will share with those who use the new edition,
in the original, a considerable part of their learning.

I desire here to thank these editors, publishers and trans-
lators for their generosity and manifestation of interest in
this enterprise. By this combination of Swiss and American
labours, Zwingli is properly presented to the English-speaking
public, as he would not be without it.

Those familiar with my Selections from Zwingli, ^ published
by the University of Pennsylvania in 1901, will notice that
in this and the volumes which, I trust, are to follow, the
contents of that volume appear. For permission to reprint
that matter I am indebted to the courtesy of the Department
of History of that University, and I here express my grateful
thanks.

The volume contains the translation of the following articles: Visit of the

Erasmus Fabricius in this volume) ; The petition of eleven priests to be allowed
to marry, July, 1522 (in this volume); the Acts of the first Zurich Disputa-
tion, January, 1523; Zurich marriage ordinance, 1525; and Refutation of the
tricks of the Catabaptists, 1527.



Preface



IX



In this volume, will be found, in English translation, all the
matter from Zwingli given on the first three-hundred and
twenty-seven pages of the edition of the originals now appear-
ing, and by way of introduction, and as far more interesting
than anything I could write, the original life of Zwingli,
written by his bosom friend, Oswald Myconius. This is, I
beUeve, its first appearance in the English language in modem
times, but, as the special introduction states, it was first
translated in the sixteenth century.

I have also inserted a treatise attributed to Zwingli in
the Schuler and Schulthess edition, but which was really by
Erasmus and Thomas Blarer, because it is alluded to by
Zwingli in his Suggestio, which will appear in Volume III of
this series. The grounds for its inclusion by Schuler and
Schulthess are thus stated in their special preface :

" When Zwingli learned that the papal anathema was upon
the point of being launched against Luther, he went to his
friend Wilhelm von Falk, who in the absence of the legate
Emiius was fulfilling his functions towards the Federation,
and tried to persuade him to dissuade the Pope from putting
forth the condemnatory Bull, on the ground that nothing
could be more surely foreseen than that the Germans would
treat both the Bull and the Pope with contempt. Report-
ing this to Myconius in a letter^ Zwingli said, 'That the
same fate awaits myself seems exceedingly likely ; I am ready,
and in such event shall not lack for consolation.' But the
warning was altogether too late. And now Zwingli pub-
lished this writing without the name of the author or of the
place of printing, the edition coming out in the late summer
of 1520.

" Simler gives in his collection (Vol. IV.) two Latin editions,
one written in Latin letters, the other in German letters
(one sheet folded in quarto), and a translation of the same
period, with the title ' Consilium hominis ex animo satisf ac-
tum cupientis et Romanae sedis dignitati et Christiani orbis

' In the new edition, VII., 343, 4.



X Preface

paci ' (' Advice of a man who from his heart desires that both
the dignity of the Roman See and the peace of the Christian
worid be fully safeguarded'). 1521 (a sheet and a half folded
in quarto). The Latin edition in German letters is charac-
terized by many errors, several omissions, and bad punctua-
tion. There is an appendix with the title, 'Apologia Christi
dni nostri pro Martino Luthero ad urbem Rhomam,' (' Christ
Our Lord's defence of Martin Luther before the city of Rome*) .
Cratander, printer at Basel, sent this writing to Von Watt on
March 8th with the Acta Lovaniens ('Louvain Proceedings')
against Luther, remarking that he recognised in both the pen
of Erasmus. The inference was correct in regard to the
'Proceedings' but not in regard to the 'Advice,' etc., for
Von Watt in the copy preserved in the Library of the monas-
tery at Ziuich has made a note in his own hand that Zwingli
was the ' Advice ' suggester. ^ The ' Defence ' is also without
mention of its author: only the fact that it is appended to
the 'Advice' makes it seem probable that it is the work of
one and the same author."

It is proposed to follow this volume with others, until all
the Latin treatises of Zwingli, all the letters to and by him,
and much of the matter now in German, including both the
First and Second Disputations, shall have been published.
It is not expected to include his commentaries on the Bible.
The volumes will necessarily vary in size, but will probably
average five hundred pages each. This initial volimie is
imfortunately much smaller than those which follow, but
circtmistances have prevented its enlargement.

Since work was begun by me onthisvoltime there has come
into my hands the Rev. Dr. Beresford James Kidd's Documents
illustrative of the Continental Reformation. (Oxford, at the
Clarendon Press, 191 1 .) It is a first-class source book. The
headings to the sections are admirably done and present a
remarkably concise history of the period covered. Most of

Preface xi

the selections are in Latin, but there are also translations from
the German, and some of the matter is in its original English.
The section devoted to Zurich affairs is to be highly com-
mended. Almost all the Latin matter will be found in this
and subsequent volumes, translated, whileinEnglishKidd gives
the items from Egli's Actensammlung relative to the punish-
ment of those who broke the Lenten fast in 1522, the street
fighting which ensued, and the defence of Froschauer before
the magistrates, all of which are referred to in this volimie's
special introduction to the sermon "On the choice of foods."
But much other illustrative material will; be welcomed by
the student.
