There He Stood

Dr. Phillip Blosser, the Pertinacious Papist, wrote an interesting article on Martin
Luther’s Bible
. It dispels some common Protestant myths.

“A common assumption among Lutherans and other Protestants is that Luther…was the Reformer, more than any other, who is to be credited with making the Bible available in the common language…What is not generally known is that there were 18 Catholic translations of the whole Bible into German before Luther’s translation saw the light of day.”

Catholic Maniacs has an interesting bit about Luther’s

“As we know Martin Luther left the church to start Lutherism but his mother remained true to the Catholic faith.”
