Example text

Salvation was no longer the end goal of a truly Christian life, but rather its starting point. Could common folk, without theological training, understand what Luther was proposing? It would be patronizing to insist they 44 could not, and also difficult to account for the enthusiasm with which the message was received, even if, for many, the ‘liberation’ promised by the gospel was a social and political rather than psychological or spiritual one. We can, however, only fully make sense of this reception if we remember that Luther was a late medieval Catholic, not a ‘Protestant’, and that the early Reformation was a movement within early 16th-century Catholicism rather than an attack on it from outside.

But it is possible to read developments in a more healthy and positive light. Such characteristic features of pre-Reformation piety as the flourishing of local saints’ cults, and the formation of religious brotherhoods or confraternities, suggest the laity’s desire for more involvement and control over the practice of their faith, as well as a strong recognition of religion’s communal significance. Luther, however, is the definitive case-study in late medieval Catholic ‘scrupulosity’. The young monk was tortured by a sense of unworthiness, and of the futility of his monkish efforts to win the favour of God.

There had been isolated revolts in the later 15th and early 16th centuries, but in 1524–5 the scale and coordination of rebellion was completely unprecedented, constituting what has been described as a ‘revolution of the common man’. Beginning in the Black Forest area of southwestern Germany, the revolt spread to the north and east, with further large outbreaks in Switzerland and Austria. The rebels pulled down nobles’ castles and sacked monasteries, doing 20 German politics and princely reformation The Peasants’ War was a turning point for reform, and for Germany.
