Heiko A.  Oberman - Luther


Reformation Anniversary in 2017

For posterity, Luther is an innovator, the reformer of the Church. He himself had a very different view of himself: as God's tool for the salvation of Christianity before the Day of Judgement expected during our times.

With one foot still deeply rooted in the Middle Ages, Luther saw himself less as a doer than as someone driven, as the mouthpiece of an immediate and overwhelming God. Luther was a monk from fear, an intrepid preacher and a prophet against the zeitgeist – a medieval prophet who put an end to the Middle Ages.
