Theologia Germanica | translations


The first English translation of the Theologia Germanica dates from 1648.

A text from 1497, the Wuerzburg or Bronnbach manuscript, was discovered in 1843 and contained text not included in Luther's editions. This text forms the basis of most subsequent English translations. Susanna Winkworth translated the book in 1857.[5]

In 1980, Bengt R. Hoffman brought out an English translation of Luther's 1518 edition.

David Blamires’ 2003 translation is based on Wolfgang von Hinten’s 1982 critical edition.
