Luther and the German Reformation 1900
1900. Although Luther's life has been written scores of times, it has always seemed to Mr. Lindsay that there is room for another, for one which will be careful to set Luther in the environment of the common social life of his time. For it is often forgotten that the 16th century, in which he was the most outstanding figure, saw the beginnings of our present social life in almost everything, from our way of looking at politics and our modes of trade to our underclothing. Contents: Reformation epoch; Luther's childhood and education; years of preparation; indulgence controversy; three great reformation treatises; at the Diet of Worms; in the Wartburg; progress of the reformation; political and social revolts; marriage, family and public life; laying the foundations of the Evangelical Church; last years of Luther's life; chronological summary.
