The concept of the Protestant truth witnesses is one of the central legitimation strategies of the Wittenberg Reformation in its theological-historical derivation. Stefan Michels shows that it proves to be a historiographical concept with ecclesiological origins and extends the ranks of Wittenberg's truth-tellers throughout church history, back to the beginnings of the time of the apostles around Jesus Christ, the teacher of truth and only head of the church.
