Chapter Summary

The appeal to the conscience of the individual person, as traditional Reformation scholarship has informed us, stood at the very beginning of the Reformation, epitomised by Martin Luther's Turmerlebnis, his discovery in Paul's Letter to the Romans that individual justification rests on faith and freely given divine grace, a discovery, which the late Heiko Oberman, ever looking for memorable labels, in conversation would call Luther's latrine theology, and which is epitomized even more dramatically by Luther's appearance at the Diet of Worms in 1521. Jacob Sturm and the German Reformation is one of the truly outstanding contributions to German Reformation history to appear in decades. Protestant Politics is dedicated to no less than six persons, one woman, five men, certainly no reflection on Tom Brady's gender politics, much rather a mirror image of the world of academics and archives, as Tom set out on his career.

Keywords: German reformation history; Jacob Sturm; Martin Luther; Paul's Letter; Protestant Politics ; Tom Brady
