Portada
Yale University Press, 1 de gen. 2006 - 380 pàgines
Written by one of the world's greatest authorities on Martin Luther, this is the definitive biography of the central figure of the Protestant Reformation.

“A brilliant account of Luther’s evolution as a man, a thinker, and a Christian. . . . Every person interested in Christianity should put this on his or her reading list.”—Lawrence Cunningham, Commonweal

“This is the biography of Luther for our time by the world’s foremost authority.”—Steven Ozment, Harvard University

“If the world is to gain from Luther it must turn to the real Luther—furious, violent, foul-mouthed, passionately concerned. Him it will find in Oberman’s book, a labour of love.”—G. R. Elton, Journal of Ecclesiastical History

Revisió d'Usuari  - jontseng - LibraryThing

A work which comes with a sterling academic reputation. Successful in placing Luther in the context of medieval thought and rescuing him from historicism. Suffers from a convulated narrative and inaccessibiltiy (one suspects a by-product of the translation). Llegeix la ressenya completa
