“Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”  

― Martin Luther

 

Martin Luther is one of the most iconic and well-recognized figures of the Protestant Reformation. His theological teachings which rejected many of the Roman Catholic Church’s doctrines were polarizing in the development of Renaissance Protestantism. He translated the Bible into German and added commentary which would influence how the bible was translated in centuries moving forward.

 

One of Luther’s most well-known commentaries was his commentary on the Epistle to the Galatians. Sixteenth-century printings of Luther are rare in and of themselves; however, those printed in English are of utmost scarcity. This London edition was printed in classic blackletter that is commonly associated with early Luther Bibles. These sermons were translated out of the original German by William Gace.

 

Note on printer: Thomas Vautrollier was a French Huguenot who printed this book without a license and subsequently fined.
