The Lutheran Reformation unleashed religious subjectivism and was a precursor of the egocentricity of the modem age. A Roman Catholic theologian who is perhaps the most eminent living dogmatician of his communion makes this claim. Michael Schmaus in his Katholische, Dogmatik (Vol 4, Part 1, 1952) holds that the type of faith which Luther expressed and propagated disregards all religious authority which is not centered in the direct approach of the soul to God.
