Description

Rejected in the sixteenth century by both Protestants and Catholics, yet hailed by Marxist historians as a forerunner of the Marxist revolution, this volume tells Müntzer's story and offers a critical assessment of him in light of his extant works, with particular attention to the religious foundations of his revolutionary program.

Endorsements

"This book engages the reader from beginning to end and testifies once again to Eric Gritsch's well-known ability to tell as story in a readable and lively way. Diligent in the interpretation of his sources and in the use of recent scholarship, he shows good judgment and gives those who want to go further an excellent introduction to both Müntzer's writings and the literature about him."
– Leif Grane, University of Copenhagen

"This is a volume that will be appreciated by the nonspecialist as well as the specialist. It reads like a novel while ... carrying on a critical dialogue with the latest Müntzer scholarship."
– Carter Lindberg, Boston University

"The sum of the author's research of almost a quarter century.... Gritsch's book is the best account of Müntzer's life and work in English."
– Franz Posset, Theological Studies
