Martin Luther was a man of the word – and a man of writing. He attained the biggest impetus for the Reformation through words. His writings were numerous: eloquent sermons, letters, after-dinner speeches and last but not least, his Bible translations have remained. The printing press, which had been newly invented at the time, had even spread some of his writings during his lifetime. We have other records thanks to the transcripts of Luther's Friend Georg Rörer. Not just the paper, but also the contextual significance and linguistic charisma have lasted throughout the centuries. His powerfully eloquent writings make up the special appeal of this collection of texts and source materials.
