Martin Luther

Full Product Description

When on 31 October 1517 an unknown monk nailed a theological pamphlet to the church door in a small German university town, he set in motion a process that ushered in the modern age. His attempts to reform Christianity would split the Western Church, divide Europe and polarise people's beliefs, leading to religious persecution, social unrest and war; in the long run his ideas would help break the grip of religion on every sphere of life. Yet Luther was a deeply flawed human being: a fervent believer tormented by spiritual doubts; a prolific writer whose translation of the Bible would shape the German language; a married ex-monk who liberated human sexuality from the stigma of sin; a religious fundamentalist, Jew-hater and political reactionary. An acclaimed historian and a brilliant biographer, Lyndal Roper reveals the often contradictory psychological forces that drove Luther forward and the dynamics they unleashed, which turned a small act of protest into a battle against the power of the Church.

Martin Luther by Lyndal Roper was published by Vintage in March 2016 and is our 50544th best seller. The ISBN for Martin Luther is 9781847920041.
