“In only 11 weeks’ time, Martin Luther managed to produce a fresh translation of the New Testament, which he published in September 1522,” said Dr. Erik Herrmann, professor of Historical Theology, dean of Theological Research and Publication, and director of the Center for Reformation Research. “Luther’s translation was not only one of the most important works in the German language but also one of the greatest literary achievements of Western history. His gift for capturing the essence of a passage and making it understandable to the common person was nothing short of remarkable.”
