Chapter Summary

This bibliography section of the book Martin Luther as Comforter: Writings on Death contains a list of reference articles and books. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. By examining Luther's writings on death and suffering, this book helps us to consider several important aspects of death. It analyzes "A Sermon on Preparing to Die", written in 1519 but seemingly intended to displace the ubiquitous ars moriendi, the 'art of dying (well)'. These books, usually amply illustrated, circulated widely in the late middle ages and were designed as instructional guides to help comfort of the person having 'taken to bed' and facing imminent death.
