Consoritum access to Collections in Gettysburg
The A. R. Wentz Library at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg was begun when the Evangelical Lutheran General Synod commissioned Benjamin Kurtz in 1826 to go to Europe to solicit contributions of money and books for its new seminary. At present, the collection numbers approximately 225,000 volumes, nearly 300 active periodical subscriptions, and a variety of other media, including video and audio cassettes, CD-ROMS, films, and microforms. The collection covers a range of disciplines in Bible, church history, theology, ecumenism, and ministry, plus supportive disciplines in human and social sciences and interfaith studies. Lutheran studies, including archives of regional Lutheran bodies, are also a specialty. Gettysburg Seminary is part of the ELCA’s Eastern Cluster of Lutheran Seminaries, along with the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, SC.
