Resources on the Logos in Philosophy and Theology

In Beginning was the Logos/Logic…

My latest paper is a comparative study of Goethe’s Logos and its relation to Jesus Christ, the Divine Logos. I hope to post it on soon. Until then, however, here is a list of resources that may be helpful in properly differentiating the Divine Logos, Jesus Christ, from the the Logos of the philosophers (e.g, Heraclitus, the Stoics, Philo, etc).  Some of these are available online for free, others can be accessed by those with academic library credentials. Enjoy!
