Chapter Summary

Catechisms are collections of the most important religious goods that are regarded as learning archives. Learning is the result of an authoritative statement that relates to previous experience and must overcome obstacles of learning. Martin Luther wrote the Small Catechism in 1529 following his visitations that he had undertaken from July 1528 to January 1529 in the Electorate of Saxony and on which he checked the knowledge of the Pastor. The visitations were carried out in the sole mandate of the sovereign and differed so from the former monastery visitations. The didactic form of catechism exhibits Christian antiquity. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the religious instruction of children and adolescents by means of catechisms is central teaching methods in school, home and church. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: catechisms; Christian antiquity; historical teaching aids; Martin Luther; religious instruction
