Martin Luther in Rom
Die Ewige Stadt als kosmopolitisches Zentrum und ihre Wahrnehmung
[Luther in Rome: A Cosmopolitan Centre and its Perception]
Ed. by Matheus, Michael / Nesselrath, Arnold / Wallraff, Martin
Aims and Scope
About 500 years ago, Martin Luther visited Rome. Reflections about his journey often inquire as to its having been a critical factor for the Reformation, a prejudicial perspective often leading to a negative view of the trip and the city. The volume seeks to free up the theme from this paradigm, and to impart a differentiated picture of the city of Rome, Luther’s Roman journey, and the recollected images associated with it.
