University of Erfurt


The separately established collection of hymnals is part of the Ducal Collection (Shelfmark Cant. Spir). It includes about 3,800 titles and goes back mainly to the Superintendent Johann Gottfried Olearius from Arnstadt (1635-1711) and his son.

The collection includes hymnals of all denominations, mainly from Central and Eastern Europe. The time frame extends from Luther's "Eight Songbook" from 1524 up to the 20th Century. In addition there are a number of hymnals in the Gymnasial Collection (Shelfmark Th). 


Depending on the publication year of the hymnals they can be viewed in the special reading room or in the reading room.
