Corrections to the Battles' Edition of the Institutes

This is a fascinating development. David F. Wright, Professor of Patristic and Reformed Christianity (emeritus) from Edinburgh University, and Dr. Jon Balserak, research fellow in theology at University of Birmingham, are considering  a revision of the Battles edition of Calvin’s Institutes. On this blog they are collecting suggested revisions of Battles’ English translation on the basis of one of the critical Latin text (usually the Opera Selecta). Thanks to Danny Hyde for pointing this out!

  1. Dr. Clark,

    Is this why Richard Muller in the introduction to Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics vol.1 states he prefers the Beveridge translation?

    Would you recommend someone who owns Beveridge to read Battles’ or do you think Beveridge is sufficient?

    Thank you,
