Product Description

In his The Babylonian Captivity of the Church, Martin Luther set forth a reconsideration of the sacramental Christian life that centered on the word. His thesis is that the papacy had distorted the sacraments with its own traditions and regulations, transforming them into a system of control and coercion.

This volume is excerpted from The Annotated Luther series, Volume 3. Each volume in the series contains annotations, illustrations, and notes to help shed light on Luther's context and to interpret his writings for today.
