He shows how Luther and his allies spread their message using a medium that was itself subversive: pamphlets written in the vernacular and directed to the broadest reading public. Closely examining Protestant and Catholic pamphlets published in Strasbourg in the early years of the Reformation, Edwards demonstrates Luthers dominance of the medium, the challenges posed by Catholic counterattacks, the remarkable success of Luthers New Testament, and the unforeseen effects of the new medium. This volume has opened an exciting new vista on the European Reformation.
