Luther the reformer : the story of the man and his career by James M Kittelson( Book )

36 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For nearly thirty years, James M. Kittelson's Luther the Reformer has been the standard biography of Martin Luther. Like Roland Bainton's biography of the generation before, Kittelson's volume is the one known by thousands of students, pastors, and interested readers as the biography that gave them the details of this dramatic man and his history. The accolades were well deserved. Fair, insightful, and detailed without being overwhelming, Kittelson was able to negotiate a "middle way" between the many directions of historical research and present a more complete chronological picture of Luther than many had yet portrayed. For this revised edition, Hans H. Wiersma has made an outstanding text even better. The research is updated, and the text is revised throughout, with an emphasis on retaining the tone and pace of the original. Additionally, the volume has an entirely new map and image program, updated bibliographies, improved timelines, and other features to enhance the reading experience. It's a great volume, greatly improved

"Ordo et libertas" : church discipline and the makers of church order in sixteenth century North Germany by Jeffrey Philip Jaynes( )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having identified the vital role played by the authors of the church orders in creating new religious policy, chapter four examines their contributions to the problem of church discipline. This case study of how these individuals addressed this delicate subject reveals that their concerns for pastoral care resulted in the approaches they advocated, rather than concessions to the state-building interests of secular authorities. To conclude, chapter five provides a collective analysis of the authors giving special attention to their backgrounds, education, and their professional accomplishments. This chapter is supplemented by a descriptive prosopography of the authors of the church orders presented in an appendix

Philip Melanchthon's Reform of German Universities and its Significance: A Study on the Relationship Between Renaissance Humanism and the Reformation by Joon-Chul Park( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This work attempts to solve the scholarly debates through an investigation of Philip Melanchthon's curricular reform of four German universities. He considered the studia humanitatis an indispensable means for clerical education at the universities. For religious and doctrinal purposes, he transformed the study program of German universities. Two results followed. First, the deep-seated scholastic traditions gave way to the humanistic disciplines, and humanism became a new dynamic in the academic milieu of Lutheran Germany. Secondly, humanistic subjects and teaching methods helped to prepare the future Lutheran pastors more adequately. In short, the principles of two different, but not opposing, movements reacted each other productively

God's special way : August Hermann Francke, Friedrich Wilhelm I, and the consolidation of Prussian absolutism by Terry Dale Thompson( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

God's Special Way examines the relationship between Halle Pietism and the Hohenzollern monarchy in order to discern the nature and effect on Brandenburg-Prussia of that alliance. Halle Pietism was a reform movement within the Lutheran church in 17th and 18th century Germany that believed the establishment church had become too concerned with correct theology, thus they aimed at a revival of intense Biblicism, personal spirituality, and social reform. The Pietists, led by August Hermann Francke (1662-1727), and King Friedrich Wilhelm I (r1713-1740) were partners in an attempt to create a Godly realm in economically strapped and politically divided Brandenburg-Prussia. In large measure the partnership produced Pietist control of Brandenburg-Prussia'a pulpits and schoolrooms, despite the opposition of another informal alliance, this between the landed nobility and the establishment Lutheran church, who hoped to maintain their own authority in the religious and political spheres

Rendering to Caesar: secular obedience and confessional loyalty in Moritz of Saxony's Diplomacy on the Eve of the Scmalkaldic War by James E McNutt( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation argues that events during the brief reign of Moritz of Saxony question the validity of such broad generalizations regarding the unilateral dominance of the princes over against the newly formed church. The work explores the political and social context of Moritz's public reaction and response to the intense Protestant pamphlet campaign and anti-imperial sermonizing which exploded on the eve of the Schmalkaldic War of 1546-47. Ironically, this prince so hated by many of his Lutheran subjects continually professed allegiance to the Augsburg Confession, and justified his actions on grounds deemed loyal to that confession. As an Albertine prince, Moritz knew himself invested with certain rights and responsibilities on both the imperial and territorial level, and matter of ecclesiastical policy had a prominent place within the purview of his rule. His imperial diplomacy cannot be adequately grasped apart from how this Albertine heritage interfaced with the Lutheran movement within his land, and close attention to his political correspondence provides insight into how he sought to justify his actions precisely within that context
