Below is a table of contents for the only modern critical edition of the works of Athanasius of Alexandria. The initial publication of sections of vols. 2-3 was begun by H.-G. Opitz from 1934-1940. The original work was published in 40-page fascicles and in many libraries these remain unbound and not properly indexed in the library catalog.

Publication of the remaining sections began again in 1996 and continues to the present. The following list is intended to assist the researcher in identifying volume (Band), fascicles (Lieferungen) and page numbers which contain any given work of Athanasius. Information on forthcoming publications in the series can be found at http://www.athanasius.theologie.uni-erlangen.de/doku.php.
