Item description for Protestants and the Cult of the Saints in German-Speaking Europe, 1517-1531 (Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, V. 65) by Carol Piper Heming...

The role of the saints became a theological dilemma for scholars and laity alike throughout the Reformation era. As Protestants tried to remove themselves from the hold of the Catholic Church, the cult of the saints remained a formidable presence. Through the analysis of 180 pamphlets published by reformers in German-speaking Europe, Carol Heming shows the struggle Protestants faced in purging the cult of the saints from their culture and religion. Heming examines why Reformation leaders so strongly and universally denounced the cult of the saints and whether the holy patrons disappeared from Protestant areas without benefit of champion or defender. Complete scriptural references used in the pamphlets against the saints and images are included.

Reviews - What do customers think about Protestants and the Cult of the Saints in German-Speaking Europe, 1517-1531 (Sixteenth Century Essays & Studies, V. 65)?

Why Reformation leaders so emphatically denounced the cult  Jan 15, 2004
Protestants And The Cult Of The Saints In German-Speaking Europe, 1517-1531 by Carol Piper Heming (Assistant Professor of History at Central Missouri State University) is a thorough and scholarly examination of 180 pamphlets published between 1500 and 1500 by religious reformers in German-speaking Europe. Heming presents evidence of the difficulties Protestants had in distancing themselves not only from the Catholic church, but also its many cults of saints. Especially focusing upon why the Reformation leaders so emphatically denounced the cult of the saints, and whether these holy patrons were expunged from Protestant worship without general protest among the Protestants themselves, is presented with an especially astute precision and an academically impressive historical insight.
