From back cover: "The Reformation was one of the most crucial and controversial periods of European history, and the impact of the 16th century religious movements which brought an end to the unity of Catholic Christendom can still be felt in our time. One of the central figures in this upheaval was Martin Luther, who gave up his life as an Augustinian monk to lead the Protestant Reformation In Germany. Luther's teaching and writings radically altered the course of religious history. This Jackdaw outlines and illustrates his life, examines the development of his thoughts and ideas, and describes the events and personalities most closely involved with the crisis his teaching provoked. Contemporary documents and woodcuts help the reader to understand the social, political, and intellectual background to the European Reformation, and create a vivid picture of the enigmatic man who challenged the might of the Church to defend what he believed to be true Christianity.
