The events of the Peasants' Revolt and Luther's attitude towards it are well known. After the peasant troubles had begun to spread more widely Luther wrote Advise for Peace on the Basis of the Twelve Articles of the Peasantry in Swabia. In this pamphlet he took both princes and peasants to task and urged a peaceful settlement after considering the demands of the peasants on the basis of their twelve articles.
