In Dru’s and in Rohde’s selections from Kierkegaard’s journals, the number identifies an entry rather than a page; the date following is that of the particular entry.

1. Works of Love, 347. In the text this quotation is put into the mouth of the Apostle John, but it is plain that the reason S.K. put it there is because he himself was so heartily in accord with it.

2. Ibid., 164.

3. Jacob Stoll, op.cit., 130 [my trans.--V.E].

4. Michael Frantz, op.cit., 41.

5. "Love Covereth a Multitude of Sins" (Discourse 3) in Edifying Discourses, 1:72.

6. Minear and Morimoto, op.cit., 19.

7. Michael Frantz, op.cit., 47, stanzas 1, 2, 5 [my trans.--V.E.].

8. Mallott, op.cit., 62.

9. Annual Meeting Minutes, 1788, art. I, p.11, and 1793, art. 1, pp. 15-16.

12. Annual Meeting Minutes, 1782, p.7; cf. 1797, art. I, pp. 18-19.

13. Sauer Junior (presumably), poems accompanying the court calendars in the Hoch-Deutsch Americanische Calendar for 1766, pp. 19-20, and for 1770, pp. 19-20; respectively [my trans--V.E.].

14. A comprehensive study of this tradition within Brethrenism is Rufus Bowman's The Church of the Brethren and War (Elgin, Ill.: Brethren Publishing House, 1944).

15. Michael Frantz, op.cit., stanza 327 [my trans--V.E.].

16. Ibid., stanzas 328-49.

17. Votes oj the House of Represent"tives of Pennsylvania, 1767-1776, Vol. VI, p. 645, quoted in Bowman, op.cit., 79-81.

18. Annual Meeting Minutes, 1785, art. 2, pp. 8-10.

19. Works of Love, 112. In the text these lines are italicized as part of a thematic statement.

20. Ibid., 158.

21. Ibid., 354.

22. Ibid., 58. These lines are part of an opening praise that introduces a major section of the book.

23. Ibid., 63.

24. Ibid., 262-84.

25. Ibid., 226, 227.

26. Ibid., 260; cf. 248-49, where S.K. as much as reiterates Michael Frantz's lines to the effect that there is no "mine" or "thine" in Christian love.

27. Ibid., 79.

28. Dru Journals, 818 (1848).

29. Works of Love, 168, 309ff. Cf. "Love Covereth a Multitude of Sins" (Discourse III) in Edifying Discourses, 1:61ff. Cf. "But How Can the Burden Be Light ..." (Discourse II) in The Gospel of Suffering, 40-41.

30. Robert Bretall, in the editor's introduction to the selection from Works of Love, in A Kierkegaard Anthology (New York: Modern Library, 1946), 283.

31. The Book on Adler, 133-34. Cf. Purity of Heart, 201ff.

32. Attack upon "Christendom," 140.

33. Papirer, 10:2:A:240 (1849) [my trans.--V.E.]. Notice the early date of this entry; it cannot be dismissed as an aberration of S.K.'s last year. But see Smith Journals, X:2:A:374 (1854-1855) for an even stronger statement.

34. Attack upon "Christendom," 184.

35. The Sickness unto Death, 254.

36. The first of "Two Notes on 'the Indivudal'" in Point of View, 113.

39. Ibid., 201.

40. 40 Ibid., 205ff.

41. Ibid., 207. S.K.'s words in Purity of Heart, 99ff., are very relevant at this point.

43. "... Courage Enables the Sufferer to Overcome the World ..." (Discourse VII) in The Gospel of Suffering, 155 [the italics are mine-V.E.).
