Religious Leaders and Thinkers, 1516 - 1922 chronicles the lives of leading figures dating back to the earliest times of the Christian church. Starting with stories of the early church leaders, such as Paul of Tarsus, the collection moves through history to the story of the 19th century as told through the lives of leading thinkers such as Friedrich Schleiermacher, Dwight Moody, and Arthur Schopenhauer.
Offering more than 3,500 monographs, the collection also covers the Protestant Reformation with biographies of leading figures such as Jan Huss, Martin Luther, and Jean Calvin. Because it profiles leaders involved in 19th century religious movements, it makes an excellent complement to Religion and Social Change, 1723 – 1921.
While English is the predominant language in the collection, it represents 18 other languages including German, French, Russian and Japanese.
