Medizinische Theologie: Christus medicus und theologia medicinalis bei Martin Luther und im Luthertum der Barockzeit : mit Edition dreier Quellentexte ...

Front Cover
This book deals with the tradition of the medical theology of Martin Luther and baroque Lutheranism. It focuses on the reformational interpretation of the topic of Christ the Physician, which reaches back to the Old Church, and its sacramental, conciliary, and medico-theological relevance.
A central point is the analysis of the development of the theologia medicinales in baroque Lutheranism, by means of previously unevaluated or rarely evaluated sources.
The volume includes critical editions of three up to now inaccessible sources (Wilhelm Sarcerius, Der Hellische Trawer Geist (1568), Simon Musäus, Nützlicher Bericht [...] wider den Melancholischen Teuffel (1569), Valerius Herberger, Leichenpredigt auf Flaminius Gasto (1618)).
