This edition is intended primarily for the reader whose knowledge of late medieval Latin and Sixteenth Century German is too small to permit him to work with Luther in the original languages. Based on the Weimar edition its texts and helps have formed a basis for this edition although in certain cases the translator has felt constrained to depart from its readings. Where literal accuracy and clarity have conflicted, clarity had been chosen. At times paraphrase seemed more faithful than fidelity.
