Tracking Luther

THIS is pretty awesome.

This resource will give you a sense of the experience of what contemporaries called the “Luther Affair” (causa Lutheri). Through items from the collection at the Newberry Library, you will see Luther and his Catholic opponents in action, using the printing press to share their vision of Christianity with a public that hung on their every word. It was not a calm exchange. The works included here show Luther and his critics developing their theologies on the fly, deflecting attacks with vicious insults as often as reasoned arguments, and continuously looking for new ways to use print to win the public relations war in which they were engaged.

Check it out.
