The book contains seven essays on the Reformation written by world-renowned authors. As much as they are widely known in their own academic fields and communities, this is the first time that such authors have come together to reflect on the major contributions of Martin Luther's thought at the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Luther and Philosophies of the Reformation is a multi-disciplinary critical assessment on the Reformation discourse taking into consideration Luther's rediscovery of the Scripture, primarily looking at readings of St. Paul with the idea of gift and participation. It also presents, compares and contrasts a literary 'Dantean reading' of Luther with the Reformer's daring development of the doctrine of the Church that is relevant today. Consequently, this book offers a strong but constructive criticism of Luther's medieval metaphysics and of the unintended outcomes of his idea from a Hegelian and radical left point of view. The authors demonstrate throughout not only the relevance of Luther's thought for us today but also his possible significance for the future.
