Dogmatik: Baier-Walther Compendium refs. (Part F)

      This concludes from Part E (Table of Contents in Part A) my project of listing Franz Pieper's references to all Old Missouri Synod writings in his Christliche Dogmatik.

Joh. Wilh. Baier — C.F.W. Walther

Compendium Theologiae Positivae
      The last installment in this series turned out to be perhaps the most ambitious for it took some weeks of work to compile this hyperlinked listing.  There are about 232 references (give or take a few) to the Baier-Walther (or Baier only) Compendium Theologiae Positivae in Pieper's Christliche Dogmatik series.
Christian Dogmatics
(in English)

      I have previously blogged several times on this work from Walther, but I wanted to portray just how much of Dr. Franz Pieper's theology was drawn from the Compendium.  The following listing shows that if one reads Pieper's Dogmatics, he will be able to almost fully understand the theology of… C.F.W. Walther, Martin Luther, and the Lutheran Church through the centuries since the Reformation.  It is no small advantage that although the Compendium is in Latin and German, Christian Dogmatics is largely in English.  This becomes a gold mine of translation work, not only of Pieper's own text but in some cases of his source material
      With the following cross-reference, one may (by clicking the hyperlinks) immediately access Pieper's source material directly.  In some cases, I found even a fuller treatment of a particular topic in his source.

      Now I present all references to Baier-Walther Compendium in Franz Pieper's Christian Dogmatics:

May the above cross-reference bring renewed use of both, the works of Franz Pieper and C.F.W. Walther.  They are the prime teachers of Old Missouri!

      With the completion of all Old Missouri references, I will move on to other references in the future:

  • Lutheran Confessions
  • Martin Luther
  • Martin Chemnitz, John Gerhard (maybe Quenstedt and Calov)
  • Other American Lutherans: Adolf Hoenecke, Charles Porterfield Krauth, Theodore Schmauck
  • Friedrich Adolph Philippi, and others yet to be determined

Future blog posts will be forthcoming on these projects.
