On The Jews And Their Lies

Martin Luther

Language: English


Former Catholic priest and professor of theology, Martin Luther is largely credited with intitiating the Protestant Reformation when he famously nailed his 95 Theses on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. What he is less known for is his fiery, yet erudite, commination of Jewish influence on Western Civilization and their arrogance in deliberately maintaining a separate identity from their Christian neighbors and the harm that, that caused to the Christian community. The young Fr. Luther was a Judeophile, but after the Reformation, when the Jews still refused to accept Christ, he began to see their true nature. This tract illuminates his growing understanding of the nature and scope of the harm caused by Jewish Identity.
