The Oxford Encyclopedia of Martin Luther

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Martin Luther

The Oxford Encyclopedia of Martin Luther provides in-depth coverage of the cultural, political, economic and artistic contributions made by Luther. It features state-of-the-art articles by leading experts worldwide, and provides a guide to the secondary literature. It also considers Luther’s legacy in a global perspective. The encyclopedia was published as a thematic print collection in 2017, the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. All of the articles appear online as part of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Religion.

To read The Oxford Encyclopedia of Martin Luther articles online, see the Martin Luther section of ORE Religion. This section will continue to grow as the project expands.
