Item description for De Indulgentiis: Die Ablasstheologie Kardinal Cajetans 1469-1534 (Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions) (German Edition) by Bernhard Felmberg...
The sale of indulgences is considered by some to be the starting point of Martin Luther's Reformation in Germany. This volume devotes its first part to the vagueness and inconsistencies of the indulgence as it was seen by Cardinal Cajetan, the leading Roman theologian in the time of Luther. It then deals with the dispute between Cajetan and Luther's writings. In its third part, the book reaches out as far as the year 1522, when Cajetan, commenting on the Summa of Thomas Acquina, gives his final opinion on the indulgence. Presenting the theological confrontations on the indulgence, due attention is given to the conflict which had a great impact on the early Reformation time.
