Do ya have any idea what the German name of this book is? I began chasing this rabbit yesterday with a post at http://expositorythoughts.wordpress.com/2010/10/21/okay-then-how-long-should-it-be-dr-martin/. I’m trying to track down the German version so I can use it here in Berlin. I guess if I were German and Lutheran, it would be a snap, but that’s not the case. Do you have any insight? Thanks for your post.

Craig,
According to the introduction of the Tabletalk edition published by Christian Focus, the book was originally titled, Colloquia Mensalia, or, his Divine Discourses at his Table. Other places I have seen it titled as, the familiar discourses of Dr. Martin Luther at his table. Try searching for any or all of these on Google Books or Amazon and I think you’ll come up with something useful. Thanks for visiting Bible Geek Gone Wild.

Thanks. Your information helped. I haven’t found exactly what I’m looking for, but Colloquia Mensalia led me to several additional leads that look promising. I did find one preview on Google Books in English under that title and one 1840 edition of Vol II in the Internet Archive. I am also tracking down the title Tischreden which apparently is another translation. Thanks again.

I found what I was looking for here: LINK. Apparently, the original text was in Latin and then later translated into German.
