Understanding Martin Luther’s Demonological Rhetoric in His Treatise against the Heavenly Prophets (1525): How What Luther Speaks is Essential to What Luther Says
2010 0-7734-3724-X
Martin Luther’s rhetoric of the demonic in his treatise Against the Heavenly Prophets in the Matter of Images and Sacraments (1525) expresses a soteriological argument regarding the necessary relation between the two realms of faith and works, which he reformulates as the proper relationship between justification and sanctification. This book builds upon the revisionist approaches of interdisciplinary studies by applying the concerns of rhetoric and linguistics as new tools of research in the field of Reformation Studies.
