The translation and interpretation of the Song of Mary, the Magnificat, by Martin Luther (1520/21) emphasizes God's manner to regard the humble and his rejection of the proud, the mighty and the rich.
The translation and interpretation of the Song of Mary, the Magnificat, by Martin Luther (1520/21) emphasizes God's manner to regard the humble and his rejection of the proud, the mighty and the rich. In this text, Luther explains the central ideas of his lectures on the Psalms for a wide range of readers. Luther's work functions additionally as a 'mirror' for the young prince to whom it is dedicated, since according to Luther princes in particular should fear God.
