Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book Three by John Calvin (1509–1564). Translated by Henry Beveridge.

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/institutes-of-the-christian-religion-book-3-by-john-calvin/
Institutes of the Christian Religion is John Calvin's seminal work on Protestant systematic theology. Highly influential in the Western world and still widely read by theological students today, it was published in Latin in 1536 and in his native French in 1541, with the definitive editions appearing in 1559 (Latin) and in 1560 (French).

The book was written as an introductory textbook on the Protestant faith for those with some learning already and covered a broad range of theological topics from the doctrines of church and sacraments to justification by faith alone and Christian liberty, and it vigorously attacked the teachings of those Calvin considered unorthodox, particularly Roman Catholicism to which Calvin says he had been "strongly devoted" before his conversion to Protestantism. The over-arching theme of the book – and Calvin's greatest theological legacy – is the idea of God's total sovereignty, particularly in salvation and election.

The Institutes are a primary reference for the system of doctrine adopted by the Reformed churches, usually called Calvinism.

Book Three of the Institutes, "which contains a full exposition of the Third Part of the Apostles’ Creed, treats of the mode of procuring the grace of Christ, the benefits which we derive and the effects which follow from it, or of the operations of the Holy Spirit in regard to our salvation." (Summary from Wikipedia & Book 3 Argument)
  1. How to claim a part, and 'how it all works' here
    To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are “up for grabs.” Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you’d like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
  2. New to recording?
    Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
  3. Is there a deadline?
    We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim (or by the target completion date, whatever is sooner). Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it’ll go back to the pool. There’s no shame in this; we’re all volunteers and things happen. The target completion date for this project is Sept 30, 2010.
  4. Where do I find the text?
    Source text: http://www.ccel.org/ccel/calvin/institutes.html Please read from the Google document linked in each section.

    Note on the text: I've noticed that some chapters have Greek terms. Sometimes these terms come through in Greek letters, but sometimes they're gibberish in our lettering. :? If you can't figure it out, post and we'll try to help.
  5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)!
    If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.


    Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: Modified Word Perfect: Standard plus noting difference in text that change the meaning.

    Please leave 5 seconds silence at the end of your recording, or 10 seconds for files longer than 30 minutes!

    Also, please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
  8. AFTER recording:
    Need noise-cleaning?
    Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity (Mac/Win) has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.

    Save files as
    128 kbps MP3

Section 01
02.49 'indiscriminately' in text read as 'indiscriminantly' "VI. As all do not indiscriminately embrace the fellowship of Christ offered in the Gospel"
03.20 'alleviated' in text read as 'allevelated' "VII. Lastly, As the hard warfare which the Christian................it is shown how it may be alleviated by meditating on the final resurrection."

I didn't know that viz is pronounced as 'videlicet', thanks dii.

Hi Tricia,
Till about half an hour ago, before I knew videlicet, viz was for me to be pronounced as 'viz' and 'that is' was usually reserved for i.e, . But videlicet does sound very grand, doesn't it? :lol:

Hi Tricia,
I'm interested in PL'ing the first section if you like.
I warn you in advance that I have not yet PL'ed but I'm willing to try my best :)

It'd be a good one for you to practice on, then. :)

Go for it. All it really needs is to spot check the edits required in THIS POST, but you may go ahead and listen to the whole thing, with proof-listening in mind, to get the feel for how to do it. Post or PM me with questions.

P.S. It's up to you if you want, but I've got at least one section in Antiquities of the Jews that needs proof-listening, since I'm PL'ing the sections but can't PL my own sections. Hee hee! CLICK HERE to go to the thread. I'll have two more sections up today, Lord willing.

I noted the spots that needed improvement and it looks like they were changed according to suggestion.

Also I can try to do the other PL if you would like, I'm unfortunately on my University campus right now and it's far too noisy to do so right now but I can try to have it done by tomorrow evening.

Hope that helps.
