Chapter Summary

Living in the observant branch of the Augustinian friars in Germany, Johann von Staupitz (ca. 1468-1524) held major leadership posts, was an esteemed preacher, and published works of theologically grounded spiritual edification. Many present-day readers know about Staupitz from his contacts with his younger Augustinian confrere Martin Luther. Staupitz appeals to Pauline soteriology in order to feature Christ's meriting the outpouring of grace which can now raise the hearts of his hearers to the sweetness of his divinity. Staupitz brought out a further contribution to spiritual renewal in early 1518, based on his 1517 Advent sermons in Munich on the love of God. Staupitz treats three erroneous ways to attain love of God, namely, being taught it by others, attaining it by our own abilities, or learning it from the letter of Scripture.
