In the 500 years since the publication of Martin Luther's 95 Theses, a rich set of traditions have grown up around that action and the subsequent events of the Reformation. Containing nearly 600 articles by a range of international scholars, this dictionary provides a comprehensive overview of Luther's life and work and the traditions emanating from the Wittenberg Reformation. It traces the history, theology, and practices of the global Lutheran movement, covering significant figures, events, theological writings and ideas, denominational subgroups, and congregational practices that have constituted the Lutheran tradition from the Reformation to the present day.
