...Block’s library there. 36 Agricola read certain of Luther’s texts thoroughly quite early. From Vyborg, he moved to Turku and worked as a secretary of the bishop. In 1531 , he purchased Luther’s Postil in Latin and very likely knew it well before studying in Wittenberg. The knowledge of Martin Luther’s theology came to Finland also through the Finnish theologians who had studied in Wittenberg. The first of them was Peder Särkilax (Pietari Särkilahti), who was already in Wittenberg when the Reformation began and afterwards led the Cathedral School in Turku until his early...

Martin Luther’s Theology of the Lord’s Supper Texts, Trends, and Themes of Luther’s Doctrine of the Lord’s Supper Theological accounts of the Lord’s Supper typically treat it beneath the heading of Christian sacraments, listing the Supper alongside baptism (most Protestants), sometimes these two together with absolution, or penance (some Protestants), in other arrangements these three plus confirmation, the anointing of the sick, holy orders, and matrimony (Catholic Christianity), or, at least in the case of Orthodox Christianity, these seven within...

...96 Between them both, they made Martin Luther’s House Postil the most circulated evangelical sermon collection in Germany until at least the Thirty Years’ War. Review of the Literature The quantity of surviving sermons relative to Luther’s entire corpus, as well as Luther’s theology of preaching (which lies at the heart of his entire theology), ensures that scholars enlist his sermons constantly in their work. This discussion limits itself to important studies on the sermons in terms of Luther’s theology of preaching, sermons in terms of genre, and, by way of example...

...theology led to a theological pluralization. These traces cannot be overlooked. The post-Lutheran theology is mainly a confessional culture of unity or uniformity. Efforts were made to establish a non-pluralistic conception of theology. That was also necessary for the canonization of Luther’s theology and the teaching in schools and universities. The new reception of Aristotle and the early modern school philosophy were allies in establishing a confessional culture within Protestant theology and, as the example of Martin Chemnitz shows, in opposition to the Council of...

... Martin Luther’s Biblical Commentary: New Testament Luther’s formal occupation was to comment on the Scriptures. For most of his life and throughout his entire academic career, Luther was a member of the University of Wittenberg’s theology faculty, a doctor in Biblia with the solemn obligation to lecture on the sacred Scriptures. It has been observed that if Luther was in a modern university, he would have been a professor of Old Testament exegesis. 1 But of course, Luther was not in a modern university, and although most of his lectures and published...

...A careful defense of the notion that Luther’s theology of the cross does challenge divine impassibility in the classical sense can be found in Dennis Ngien ’s The Suffering of God According to Martin Luther’s Theologia Crucis (Vancouver: Regent, 1995) ; meanwhile, David Luy has argued that such understandings make the mistake of importing Luther’s rhetoric of divine suffering onto his metaphysics, which remain more in line with classic impassibility. Cf. Luy , Dominus Mortis: Martin Luther on the Incorruptibility of God in Christ (Minneapolis: Fortress, 2014)...
