Siegfried  Bräuer, Günter  Vogler - Thomas Müntzer


Thomas Müntzer – the unknown reformer

Thomas Müntzer is one of the most controversial personalities in German history. He was faced with hostility during his short life as the embodiment of the devil, and rejection and legends shaped his image. Was he just a hot-headed social revolutionary who thought the end of the world was imminent and for this reason fought with clenched fists for the rights of the "little man"? Or is there evidence to be made out of a new, independent theology with which he was reacting to the signs of crisis in the Church and society?

Siegfried Bräuer and Günter Vogler are the first theologian and historian who together follow the life and influence of the preacher, minister and one of the leading figures in the German Peasants' War. Going back to the sources, they trace his path and work out the roots and points of focus of his theology.
