Early works to 1800
|Named Person:||Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ.|
|All Authors / Contributors:||
Hans Cranach; Martin Luther; Philipp Melanchthon; Johann Schwertfeger; Lucas Cranach; Robert Hoe; John Eliot Hodgkin; Francis Bedford; Lessing J. Rosenwald Collection (Library of Congress); Martin Luther Collection (Library of Congress)
|Notes:||Scenes depicted in 26 woodcut illustrations on opposite pages from the life of Christ parodied in contrast to the pope's life and government. The latter are followed by quotations from the canon law, the former by quotations chosen chiefly from the Gospels. The selection of these quotations was presumably begun by Luther and continued by Melanchthon assisted by Schwertfeger. Cf. Luther. Werke. Kritische Gesammtausgabe, v. 9 (1893), p. 689-690.
Woodcuts attributed to Hans Cranach, formerly attributed to Lucas Cranach. Cf. Rosenwald.
