In: Martin Bucer Briefwechsel/Correspondance: Band II (1524-1526)
Editor: Jean Rott
Contributor: Reinhold Friedrich
During the last forty years there has been a remarkable resurgence in interest by 16th-century historians in the Strasbourg Reformer, Martin Bucer (1491-1551). The components and originality of his thoughts and his actions, as well as the reality of his ideas are emerging more and more. This is largely due to the new edition of his works undertaken by an international committee, established in 1952. This edition is divided into three sections: Opera Latina (of which 5 volumes have appeared since 1953 : vols. 1-3, 15 and 15 bis); Deutsche Schriften (10 volumes since 1960: vols. 1-6, 3, 7 and 17); Correspondance (vol. 1, 1979). The present second volume of the Correspondance (1524-1526) essentially covers five themes: 1) the controversies with the Roman church, 2) the evangelical propaganda, especially in the Roman speaking countries, 3) the sacramentarian dispute and the search for reconciliation, 4) the Peasant war and 5) the beginning of the anabaptist crisis.

Series Editors: Reinhold Friedrich and Berndt Hamm
Theologian Martin Bucer (1491-1551) had an extensive knowledge of European affairs. In addition to his contacts within Alsace and Germany, he established relations with almost every country on the continent. It was his ecumenical attitude that often led him to mediate between the various parties involved in the religious battles of his time. His deep commitment and his objective to reach an agreement can be traced in all his activities, works and letters. As Bucer did not found a religious denomination himself, his theological and historical importance has been underestimated for a long time. In addition, his handwriting is hard to decipher, which makes it difficult to deal with his works, especially his letters. This academic edition of Bucer's correspondence provides scholars with a rich source to understand a part of Reformation history about which very little is known.
