Chapter Summary

This appendix presents a catalogue of autograph drawings, manuscripts and printed editions of Paul Lautensack's work. Lautensack who did not try to spread Luther's doctrine but rather to propagate his own revelations, had a greater need than other lay authors to underline his authority, and he did so in three different ways, invoking divine inspiration, the endorsement of the foremost Reformation theologians and, most surprisingly, his professional expertise as a painter. Apparently Paul Lautensack believed that his diagrams, which re-arranged God's revelations in Bible and Nature and so for the first time showed their true contents, came purely from divine inspiration and had nothing to do with him. Whilst Lautensack believed that his revelation would immediately convince everyone, he must have realize that his diagrams were only met with perplexity, especially from scholars.
