Mood swings. Dramatic statements. Eating incredible volumes of food. You know, typical teenager stuff. Well, Martin Luther was no exception, as you'll hear in our new episode on this man's youth and his conversion story. We also hit you up with solid resources on the subject from primary to secondary even to tertiary sources (which you'll know how to use if you followed our previous volume on historiography)!
Episode 4 will release two weeks after this current episode, on August 18th. In that conversation, we'll discuss Martin Luther's dramatic turn from (relatively) quiet monk to shouty/wordy/angry Reformer! Don't miss that one.
If you listened to episode 3 by now, you'll know we promised you a link to find out more about that trail in Erfurt. Well, here it is: https://www.erfurt-tourismus.de/en/all-about-erfurt/main-topics/luther-2017/luther-trail-in-erfurt/
We also produce a second podcast that serves as a companion to this one called "Saints Gone Before." As of the release of this episode of An Oral History of the Church, we've already begun our latest text, Martin Luther's On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church. It's an exciting text. We're having a good time, and hope you join us over there for Lutheran texts and many others with new episodes every Monday morning.
An Oral History of the Church is co-hosted by Jonathan McCormick and Adam Christman. It is edited and produced by Adam Christman.
