    One thought on “Luther on Women: A Sourcebook”

    1. This book gives that it promises. It is very interesting to study these excerpts. Luther lived in a world that was very different from today and he has some credit in the change.

    2. The Renaissance and the Reformation challenged Medieval beliefs on women. As the reluctant leader of the Reformation, and as a pastor, Luther found himself in the middle of the controversy, especially after marrying an ex-nun ! This book collects parts of sermons, letters and 'table talk' on the subject. Though far from a feminist, he points out that if Adam had not eaten the Apple and called on God for help, the Fall might have been avoided. In any case, he reminds the male of the species, that [...]

    3. This is a collection of writings and speeches from Martin Luther that had anything to do with Eve, Mary, and women in general. I found Luther to be quite long winded at moments, but that was his style. I have read about half of the chapters for school, but i have not yet read it from cover to cover. It is possible that I might enjoy it more when I am not rushing to read it in time for my class's discussion on it. I do enjoy this portion of history so I plan on giving this book another shot.

    4. European History/ Religon. Nunn is a professor of History who has brought Martin Luther's primary documents to life. Martin Luther contributed extensively to the sixteenth-century debate about women with his writings on women and related subjects such as marriage, the family, and sexuality. This volume is a treasure.

    5. An excellent and much needed sourcebook! Luthers views on women, marriage, and even children, found in everything from letters to "Table Talk" to sermons. A must have for reformation and women historians!
