Volume 18 contains 130 letters from October until December 1546 with a detailed summary of their content. Of the 42 correspondents involved, Ambrosius Blarer in Constance, Oswald Myconius in Basle, Johannes Haller in Augsburg and Strassburg’s Martin Bucer emerge as the most frequent writers. The prevalent topic is again the Schmalkaldic War (1546/47), the waning success of the Protestants‘ cause as well as the political tactics of the Swiss Confederation. Events in Augsburg, the schools in Kappel and Chur, the church in Basle and Berne, the fate of the library of Zug’s Reformer Werner Steiner and numerous contemporary publications are amongst the news discussed in the letters. This volume also offers a plethora of hitherto unknown biographical details, e.g. concerning a relative of Andreas Vesalius or the Bernese deans Jodocus Kilchmeyer und Johannes Fädminger.

Kathy Griffin is Wrong

She isn’t making a statement she’s promoting violence.  We cannot condemn violence when our enemies engage in it and then embrace it for our own cause.  And violence is NEVER funny.

No, Kathy, you’re wrong.  And your action is vile.

Apparently Metaxas is Writing a Book on Luther

Save your money.  Metaxas isn’t a Luther scholar (or any kind of scholar) so his book will be at least as useless as his vile misrepresentation of Bonhoeffer.

Spare yourself the copious regurgitation Metaxas’s ignorant spewings will evoke.
