Excerpt from Luther and Lutherdom, Vol. 1 of 1: From Original SourcesContrary to expectation, I had early to see to the elaboration of a new edition of the first volume of my work, at a time in which I had thought it necessary to be busied with the completion of the second volume. Since from the beginning - I emphasize this at the outset advisedly, to clip the claws of false rumors and to tranquilize certain anxious politicians - I had no intention of putting forth an "incendiary work" among the people, hut rather in plain, unbedecked honesty sought to write a hook for the learned, I supposed and said openly that it was likely to be a long time before the edition was exhausted. The result was to be otherwise. Thanks to the equally eager interest with which Catholics and Protestants alike hailed my research and its subject, the first edition ran out within a month.The turn of the controversy for and against my book has made a repetition of the preface to the first edition superfluous. It is enough for once to have made clear the fact, and from the scientific point of view to have entered a protest against it, that hitherto, on the Protestant side, methods in handling Luther and his historical appearance, and in treating the Catholic Church, yea, Christ Himself and Christianity, have been entirely diverse. But Protestants are not the first to play this game. The Donatists did the same thing, giving St. Augustine occasion to say: The Donatists have Donatus instead of Christ.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
