The purpose of the Electronic Capito Project is to provide the text of letters from and to Wolfgang Capito which are either unpublished or have been published before 1850 and are therefore difficult to access. The transcriptions should be regarded as a work in progress. Corrections and suggestions are welcome.

The website is part of a larger editorial and translation project aimed at making the correspondence of Capito available to an English readership in conventional printed form. The first volume is now complete: E. Rummel, ed., with the assistance of Milton Kooistra, The Correspondence of Wolfgang Capito. Volume 1:1507-1523 (Toronto: University of Toronto Press, 2005). The second volume, covering the years 1524-1531, is scheduled for publication in 2009.

The Capito Project is headed by Erika Rummel, Professor Emerita of History, Wilfrid Laurier University, and is supported by a grant of the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). For further information on the project, contact Milton Kooistra or Gavin Hammel.
