The Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church in Print: A Selective Union List with Annotations of Serial Publications Issued by the Augustana Evangelical … after 1962 (ATLA Bibliography Series)
The Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church was the predecessor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It existed for over a century (1860-1962) and was the largest organization ever founded by Swedish-Americans, as well as the largest of the Swedish-American denominations. In terms of literary output, Swedish-Americans were among the most productive of ethnic groups within North America during the nineteenth and twentieth century. They founded newspapers and magazines, established publishing houses, published books, founded literary societies and interest groups, and recorded their memories and aspirations.
In The Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church in Print, author Virginia P. Follstad has identified over 320 periodicals published by the Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church, its agencies, and by various institutions related to it. First naming these journals, magazines, and newspapers, the book then explains their contents, when and by whom they were published, and where materials are located in libraries and archives in the U.S., Canada, and Sweden.
Anyone doing research on Swedish-American history and culture, the history of the Lutheran Church in the U.S. and Canada, Swedish-American church history more broadly, and particularly the history and inner life of the Augustana Evangelical Lutheran Church will find this volume an exceedingly generous and helpful guide.
