Historical Theology


In the case of Michelangelo and Luther, whose labors extend largely into the same period of time, the parallel becomes doubly attractive. For a comparison of this nature is not dependent on a similarity or an identity of occupation of the persons concerned, unless, of course, the purpose be that of setting forth the success in a single field of human activity and learning. It may aim solely at a delineation of personal characteristics and an evaluation of historical importance, together with a summary description of the man's chief works, without resorting to a detailed presentation of his achievements which, in the case of Michelangelo, would presume a technical knowledge not present with the average scholar. It is this procedure which will be adopted in the following considerations.
