Chapter Summary

This section of the book Martin Luther as Comforter: Writings on Death presents an index of scriptures. The book explores Luther's martyrological literature, written between 1522 and 1527 and consisting in two forms: (1) pamphlets that Luther wrote to congregations and other readers who had been closely touched by the deaths of persecuted believers; (2) his correspondence to those awaiting execution for their faith. In the latter documents, Luther discusses the actions of the saints to provide comfort and encouragement to people facing death, especially execution for their faith, while eschewing the notion that saints should be intermediaries.

Keywords: death; God; Luther's martyrological literature
