Sample text

Traditional evaluations had been turned on their head. 63 In contrast to the ceremonial externalization of religiosity and the suffering that resulted when the clergy disturbed people’s relation to God, mystical piety placed the laity in a living, existentially experienced relationship with God. In its origins mysticism was a piety of the cloister; now in a general, popularized form it was made accessible to the laity. Something similar had already occurred with the devotio moderna. Müntzer’s appropriation of the mystical tradition focused especially on describing the individual’s path to salvation and the pneumatological arguments of the Bible which he could employ in the service of his own theological program.

Thus, the first alternative to the late medieval church was a communal Reformation—more a movement than an institution—that assumed a multiplicity of expressions in reforming initiatives in the towns and countryside: in the Knights’ Revolt (1522); in the “revolution of the common man” (1525); and in the congregations of the Anabaptists or the conventicles of the Spiritualists. 6 Goertz (1993); Goertz, “Eine ‘bewegte’ Epoche. Zur Heterogenität reformatorischer Bewegungen,” in Vogler (1998), 23–56.

The second aspect is the 34 Bubenheimer (1983), 79. Cf. Sigrid Looß, “Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt in der modernen Forschung,” in Looß (1998), 79. ”36 Holy Scripture establishes how a life is to be ordered so that it corresponds to the image of God. 37 Luther had a Christological center for Scriptural exegesis: “what reveals Christ”; for Karlstadt it was the “image of God” that revealed itself in Christ and is restored in the abyss of the human soul. This salvific center is the point of reference that determines what stands in its way externally or what presses from within to assume an external form.
