Get a 1563 Heidelberg Catechism — Ja!
I am still enthralled with the new Post-Reformation Digital Library. I can’t believe how much good stuff is available from our heritage. This afternoon, I was downloading all the Olevianus resources and discovered that you can download a .pdf of the 1563 edition of the Heidelberg Catechism from the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich. One neat thing about this early edition is that it includes liturgical forms and prayers, also prayers for household use. You can find the link here — it’s the first item, “Catechismus oder Christlicher Unterricht.” And when you get to the BSB page, click on the “Ja” button and then hit “Weiter” and your download should start.
