Thomas Müntzer - Apocalyptic Mystic and Revolutionary

£14.99

Product description

Hardback book with protective dust jacket. Minimal wear to dust jacket and outer cover of book. Spine undamaged. Pages unmarked and undamaged.

A masterly new biography of Thomas Müntzer by a leading historian of the revolutionary Reformation movements. Controversial and complex, without an understanding of Thomas Müntzer it is impossible to gain a full understanding of the Reformation. Hitherto Müntzer has been imperfectly understood. He has often been characterised simply as an extremist: some have seen him as a theologian steeped in mystic piety, others as a rabid apocalyptic, or a relentless antagonist of Martin Luther, or an intrepid revolutionary. He has been deprecated as a restless fanatic and utopian; and just as often honoured as a selfless fighter for truth and justice.

Professor Goertz has found the key to understanding the many controversial aspects of Müntzer's life in Müntzer's extraordinary ability to relate social conflicts with theological thinking, in a world where changing medieval traditions took on profound spiritual dimensions, created new social conflicts, and ultimately revolutionised the social and spiritual lives of ordinary people.

Goertz shows how Müntzer was inseparably apocalyptic mystic and revolutionary.
