These editions are related to various PhD-theses and book projects. The theological works of Melanchthon is part of the Opera Melanchthonis, the critical edition of Philip Melanchthon, organized by the European Melanchthon Academy, and the TUA and is a project within RefoRC (Reformation Research Consortium), the academic arm of Refo500.
