A turning point was the arrival in Rome around April 1, 1520 , of Johann Eck to assist in Luther’s condemnation. Eck brought with him for presentation to Pope Leo X a manuscript of his just completed defense of the Roman primacy. 31 Eck brought as well his own list of twenty-seven errors held by Luther, which included new heterodoxies embraced by Luther at the Heidelberg Disputation of April 26, 1518 , and the Leipzig Disputation. 32 As the papal...

...Martin Luther’s Treatises and Essays The Treatises of Martin Luther As many scholars have noted, Martin Luther comes to us in a dizzying array of literary forms. His collected works include commentaries, catechetical writings, sermons, treatises and essays, letters, polemics, disputations, pamphlets, and hymns. 1 The sheer breadth of his work can lead to misconceptions about Luther as an author. Because he did not write a more systematic theology like Philip Melanchthon’s Loci Communes or John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion , it is tempting to suggest...

...Melanchthon’s student than Luther’s. 7 His theses for a disputation with a representative of the Catholic Church in 1522 prove him to be a more radical reformer than Luther. 8 Knopken’s sermons have all disappeared, but he also published a Commentary on the Letter to the Romans ( 1524 ), which reached the fourth printing by 1525 . Other important persons in Livonia’s reformation were Johannes Lohmüller and Sylvester Tegetmaier, both of German background. Lohmüller acted as the Town Secretary in Riga, and he was the one who undertook personal contact with Luther by asking...

... that Martin Luther was profoundly, if selectively, shaped by the intellectual and visionary traditions of the medieval Church during his formative years. 13 Luther revealed these debts in his earliest writings. Articles 19 to 21 of the Heidelberg Disputation ( 1518 ), for example, contain explicit praise for mystical theologians who both recognized the crucified Christ as the heart of “true theology” and condemned a “theology of glory” that sought to eschew suffering. 14 This implicit callback to Bernard’s theology was made more explicit with Luther’s utilization...
