Luther, der Ketzer: Rom und die Reformation (German Edition) by Volker Reinhardt

By Volker Reinhardt

Bisher unbeachtete Akten in den Vatikanischen Archiven lassen erstmals detailliert erkennen, wie Luther von Rom aus wahrgenommen wurde. Volker Reinhardt zeigt in seinem bahnbrechenden Buch, wie sich daraus ein ganz neues Bild der Reformation ergibt, deren tiefere, bis heute nachwirkende Ursachen in Hass und Unverständnis zwischen "kultivierten Italienern" und "barbarischen Deutschen" liegen. Luther hegte einen flammenden Hass auf "des Teufels Sau, den Bapst". Die römischen Theologen wiederum verstanden nicht, used to be der grobschlächtige, unendlich eitle Mönch anderes wollte, als das Papsttum zu zerstören. Und fromme Fürsten in Deutschland hatten ihre eigenen Gründe, den wortgewaltigen Hassprediger zu unterstützen. So battle der Weg zur Kirchenspaltung früh vorgezeichnet ganz unabhängig von den theologischen Disputen, die schon damals kaum jemand verstand. Volker Reinhardt zeigt anhand bisher vernachlässigter römischer Quellen über Luther, dass die wahren Gründe für die Glaubensspaltung jenseits der Glaubensfragen liegen. Er rekonstruiert erstmals die großen, von Protestanten mythisch verklärten Begegnungen zwischen Luther und dem Papsttum aus römischer Sicht, zeigt, warum die Päpste das Geschrei im fernen Deutschland oft nicht ernst nahmen, und zeichnet ein erstaunlich neues Bild von dem Kampf der Mentalitäten und Interessen, der die Welt verändert hat.
