Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts that describes Lutheran ecclesiastical culture. Lutheran ecclesiastical culture was profoundly shaped by-but not completely dictated by-the core of the new perception of reality formulated and propagated by Luther, Melanchthon, and their colleagues in the Wittenberg circle. This book examines the ways in which Luther's followers conceived of the interaction of God in the various forms of his means of acting, his Word, with sinners. The Lutheran view of human creatures also defined them as sinners who live in defiance of God.

Keywords:Lutheran ecclesiastical culture; Wittenberg Reformation
