Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Reformation was originally an attack on a corrupt church, sparked by Martin Luther, but for some it did not go far enough. Thomas Muntzer, originally Luther"s prote∞ge∞, became increasingly convinced that the Reformation needed to be a revolution. In 1524 he became one of the leaders in the Peasants" War, where the revolution against the church expanded into a revolutionary attempt to realize the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Wu Ming, the collective of Italian authors who wrote the bestselling novel Qabout the Radical Reformation under the name Luther Blissett, ask why Muntzer has inspired radicals for almost 500 years.

Revolutions: classic revolutionary writings set ablaze by today"s radical writers. This essential series features classic texts by key figures who took center stage during a period of insurrection. Each book is introduced by a major contemporary radical writer who shows how these incendiary words still have the power to inspire, to provoke and maybe to ignite new revolutions.

Synopsis:

"Omnia sunt communia--all things are common."--Thomas Müntzer.

Synopsis:

Thomas Müntzer was a radical pastor frustrated by the Reformation. He believed that Martin Luther's stand against the Church did not go far enough and demanded the realization of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. To that end, in 1524 he lead the Peasants' War in Germany, an insurrection that culminated in his brutal execution. Gathered here, along with Müntzer's final confession, are some of his key rousing sermons attacking the princes and preaching an early form of communism.

Wu Ming, the Italian authors' collective, brought the Radical Reformation to life in their bestselling novel Q (written under the pseudonym Luther Blissett). In an introduction, they examine how Müntzer has continued to inspire visionaries and radicals for the last 500 years.
