Berndt Hamm focuses on the stimuli from late medieval theology and piety and the religious experiences which led the young Luther to create a new biblical theology and to break with the traditional church in the years between 1505 and 1520.
Berndt Hamm focuses on the stimuli from late medieval theology and piety and the religious experiences which led the young Luther to create a new biblical theology and to break with the traditional church in the years between 1505 and 1520. In doing so, Hamm subjects the prevalent concept of the »reformational turning point« to a fundamental revision. The thematic focus is on justification and Christian freedom, faith and love, God's distance and closeness, anger and mercy, fear and consolation, mysticism and blessed death. The author provides surprising new interpretations of Luther's 95 Theses and his On the Freedom of a Christian.
