Product Description

Martin Luther: Rebel in an Age of Upheaval provides a comprehensive examination of the life of Martin Luther. Despite the massive change that Luther’s reformation work brought about in the religious landscape of early-modern Europe, Heinz Schilling offers his readers a look at the man as an individual and not just as the influential reformer he was. Luther is portrayed in this work as one individual in the larger struggle for the reform of the church and its relationship to the world. Translated from the original German text, this work is an excellent resource for anyone desiring to have a more in-depth look at the life of Martin Luther.

Publisher's Description

No other German has shaped the history of early-modern Europe more than Martin Luther.

In this comprehensive and balanced biography we see Luther as a rebel, but not as a lone hero; as a soldier in a mighty struggle for the universal reform of Christianity and its role in the world. The foundation of Protestantism changed the religious landscape of Europe, and subsequently the world, but the author chooses to show Luther not simply as a reformer, but as an individual.

In his study of the Wittenberg monk, Heinz Schilling - one of Germany's leading social and political historians - gives the reader a rounded view of a difficult, contradictory character, who changed the world by virtue of his immense will.

Author Bio


Heinz Schilling was Professor of Early Modern History at the Humboldt University, Berlin until his retirement in 2010. His main areas of research are in early modern European history, including studies in religion, politics, migration studies, foreign policy, and social and cultural history.

Editorial Reviews


"Entering a world saturated with Luther biographies following celebrations of the anniversary of the 95 theses, Heinz Schilling's Martin Luther has done far more than merely hold its own. This tome is an exceptional piece of scholarship produced by a brilliant scholar On every page, the reader feels she is meeting Martin Luther. Schilling's knowledge of Luther's corpus and his times is comprehensive-the result being a biography truly worthy of celebration."--Jon Balserak, Reading Religion


"Although there existed a lot of literature on Martin Luther, there has been a gap as far as his universalism is concerned. Martin Luther fills that gap. It is a meticulously researched book that provides deep analysis of the role of Martin Luther in the rise of Protestantism. It is an insightful and highly scholarly book but it s very readable at the same time. It should be on university curriculums for history. It is a must-read for everyone interested in the history of Europe and religion. Heinz Schilling s scholarship is unmatched in its insight, scholarly value, and authority."--The Washington Book Review
