Articuli CCCCC. Martini Lutheri: ex sermonibus eius sex et triginta, quibus singulatim responsum est
Shoults Gb 1526 L
Cologne: Peter Quentel
Initially, Cochlaeus was sympathetic to Luther’s cause but after meeting with him at the Diet of Worms in 1521, Cochlaeus made it his mission to discredit Luther and the Reformation. In a corpus of work that would eventually number over 200, he attacked Luther and his reformation philosophies. He was against ‘simple people’ and women reading Luther’s translated Bible, and their increased involvement in Church life. He fought dirty – he spread rumours that Luther was against the selling of indulgences only because he was jealous of the money they brought in; he alleged that Luther was involved in underage and group sex with nuns; and that his birth was the result of his mother coupling with a devil. Here is just one of Cochlaeus’s works responding to and disputing parts of Luther’s many sermons.
