This collection completes the series The Reformation in Heidelberg. It comprises a wide array of rare primary sources gathered from libraries in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. It expands the number of works available by such theologians as Pierre Boquin and Zacharias Ursinus, and features more works by the prominent medical humanists, Thomas Erastus and Johannes Lange.

This supplement dramatically enhances the first edition Reformation in Heidelberg I by adding a group of important, older secondary sources. Many of these are difficult to access, and it is hard - if not impossible - to find them all in the same library. However, they are essential to any study of the materials found in the collection's primary sources. Several of the works deserve to be highlighted. Monumenta pietatis et literaria (Ludwig Mieg et al.) is a major early compilation of historical materials, including letters from the era and Alting's Historia ecclesii Palatinae - the earliest history of the Reformation in the Palatinate. Kluckhorn's collection of the letters of Friedrich III remains a necessary point of access to the politics of the Heidelberg Reformation.

Heinrich Heppe's Die confessionelle Entwicklung der altprotestantischen Kirche Deutschlands marks out the central concern of this influential scholar (known today for his Reformed Dogmatics project): It documents his highly influential understanding of German Reformed theology as a Melanchthonian middle ground between Calvinism and Lutheranism. In addition, Heppe's three-volume Dogmatik offers a broad sample of citations from the era. Gooszen's study of the text of the Heidelberg Catechism remains a standard examination of the early history of the document that modern scholars consistently take into consideration.

In short, in addition to rounding off the collection of essential primary sources on the Heidelberg Reformation, the second part offers a coordinated compilation of works that supply background and context for the collection of texts in the first series.
