Luther for the Future
The Reformation Revisited
by Kirsi I. Stjerna
Kirsi Stjerna looks at the inequities in welfare and education that galvanized Martin Luther into action. She begins by introducing his theology, at the epicenter of which lies a deep concern for freedom, especially of spirituality. She then turns to women’s role in the Reformation. Personal correspondence, cookbooks, and other overlooked sources offer a glimpse into women’s influence on church, politics, and society.
