Luther and German Humanism, Hardback Book

Luther and German Humanism Hardback

Part of the Variorum Collected Studies series


The particular interest of Professor Spitz has been the close relationship and synergy between humanism and religious reform in the transformation of European culture in the 16th century. Within the general cultural and intellectual context of the Renaissance and Reformation movements, the present volume focuses on Luther and German humanism; a subsequent collection looks more particularly at the place of education and history in the thought of the time.

The articles here discuss Luther's imposing knowledge of the classics, his attitudes towards learning, the religious and patriotic interests of the humanists, and the role of a younger generation of humanists in the Reformation.

Also included is a far-reaching appraisal of the impact of humanism and the Reformation on Western history.
