The Junius Institute to Digitize Zanchi’s Opera Omnia

One of those research projects I mentioned is now public. The Junius Institute is affiliated with Calvin Theological Seminary and exists to digitize and distribute 16th and 17th century works. The Davenant Trust has given them a grant to create digital editions of the complete works of Girolamo Zanchi:

Girolamo Zanchi (1516-1590) was a third generation reformer, an exile from Italy who taught in the Reformation cities of Strasbourg and Heidelberg. His collected works, covering 8 total volumes and nearly 4,000 pages, were published after his death and exercised a major influence on the development of Reformed thought into the seventeenth century and beyond. The Davenant Trust is sponsoring the digitization of Zanchi’s Opera omnia, providing a significant beginning to the larger initiative to digitize the significant rare book holdings at the Calvin College campus.
