The first edition of the Real-Encyklopadie was published 1853-1868 as a "reply to the challenge of the Roman Catholic scholars engaged upon the Kirchenlexikon oder Encyklopadie der katholischen Theologie (1846-1860)...." The Realencyklopadie was edited by Johann Jakaob Herzog (1805-1882) a German Reformed theologian, and professor at Lausanne, Halle & Erlangen. "In 1877 the first volume of the second edition of `Herzog' appeared, edited by Professor Herzog with the assistance of his colleague in the theological faculty in Erlangen, Gustav Leopold Plitt (1836-80). On Plitt's death, Herzog called in another colleague, Albert Hauck (1845- ), the professor of church history, who survived him and brought the work to its triumphant close in 1888 in eighteen volumes, including index. In the spring of 1896 appeared the first part of the third edition of `Herzog' with Hauck, who meanwhile had gone to Leipsic as professor of church history, as sole editor." The English New Schaff-Herzog Ency. of Religious Knowledge was based on the third edition of the Realencyklopadie. Samuel Macauley Jackson, speaking of the English New Schaff-Herzog, says, "This encyclopedia presents in a condensed and modified form that great body of Protestant learning called the Realencyklopädie..., edited by Professor Albert Hauck..., the famous church historian of Germany."--all quotes above from New Schaff-Herzog Ency Rel. Knowl., I:ix-x. We offer the Second Edition of this dated, but still useful & valuable work.
