Luther, Cranach, and The Making of the Reformation: A Conversation with Steven Ozment
Posted by Don Bryant on May 5, 2012
Al Mohler has a most interesting conversation with Steven Ozment, the McLean Professor of Ancient and Modern History at Harvard University. The topic is Lucas Cranach the Elder, painter and printmaker of the Reformation period. The more famous images we have of Martin Luther are from Cranach. But he was more than a painter. He was an advisor of Luther’s, who imaged Luther for the public but who also preserved Luther from some unnecessary controversies that spared him moments that could have seriously detracted from, if not destroyed, Luther’s legacy.
The interview is here and is more than a worthwhile listen. Mohler interviews some pretty high octane guests at his Thinking in Public program. Subscribe at iTunes.
