Our purpose is not to answer the question whether allegory should be used or not. We do not wish to raise the question whether allegorical interpretation should find a place in our exegetical practise. Our purpose is to show what Luther thought of allegorical interpretation. We shall attempt to answer the question whether he considered it permissible to use allegory at any time. If allegory may be used, and we know that Luther made use of it until the last, then what are the principles, the rules, to which it must be subjected?
