Martin Luther¡¦s Bible, published in 1534, was the first complete
German Bible and a pivotal event in the history of Christianity.
Luther¡¦s revolutionary translation fueled anger and revulsion
toward Rome and began Protestantism. In The Bible in Pictures,
each of the 117 hand-colored woodcut illustrations is meticulously
reproduced from a rare original copy. Fussel provides a scholarly
overview of Luther¡¦s life and the detailed descriptions of the
illustrations and their iconography.
