Luther in Europe: His Works in Translation 1517–46

  • Bernd Moeller


In a lecture held in the anniversary year 19831 Geoffrey Elton stirred up historians, as he loves to do occasionally, with an emphatic declaration against the thesis that Luther was the father of the Reformation. Elton is not questioning the fact that the Wittenberg Professor was ‘Reforma tor der deutschen Lande’ — ‘das ist wohl Ehre genug’. Rather, he is registering his doubt that Luther was ‘für ganz Europa der Ursprung der Reformation’.
