Das Newe Testament deutzsch

 

 

Name:
Luther, Martin, 1483-1546 (Translator), Cranach, Lucas, 1472-1553 (Illustrator), Lemberger, Georg, 1495?-1540? (Illustrator)
Title:
Das Newe Testament deutzsch
Other Titles:
German New Testament
Abstract:
The third Wittenberg folio edition of Luther's translation. Woodcut illustrations of the Apocalypse of St. John, from the workshop of Lucas Cranach the Elder, depict the defeat of the satanic dragon at the conclusion of that visionary work. The Apocalypse was a favored subject of artists. In Luther’s day, speculation about the end of days and a vivid sense of the "porous" nature of the cosmos – its openness to otherworldly powers of good and evil – were commonplace. Luther himself spoke often of the Devil, sometimes mockingly, as a regular player in the drama of his daily life and struggles.
