The Roman Rhetor and Luther’s Reformation
In Cicero in Heaven: The Roman Rhetor and Luther’s Reformation, Carl Springer traces the historical outlines of Cicero’s rhetorical legacy, paying special attention to the momentous impact that he had on Luther, his colleagues at the University of Wittenberg, and later Lutherans. While the revival of interest in Cicero’s rhetoric is more often associated with the Renaissance than with the Reformation, it would be a mistake to overlook the important role that Luther and other reformers played in securing Cicero’s place in the curricula of schools in modern Europe (and America). Luther’s attitude towards Cicero was complex, and the final chapter of the book discusses negative reactions to Cicero in the Reformation and the centuries that followed.

Abstract

This article studies the representation of Peter in the Paschale carmen of Sedulius, a biblical epic of the fifth century. We know little about Sedulius himself or the circumstances of his poem’s composition, but we can, nonetheless, explore possible intentions for the work. Why, for instance, might the apostle Peter be presented in a more favorable light by Sedulius than by the canonical evangelists? This article explores what such a valuation of Peter could possibly mean in light of what can be determined or surmised about the composition of the Paschale carmen and its Sitz im Leben.
