Thomas Müntzer : apocalyptic, mystic, and revolutionary by Hans-Jürgen Goertz( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A masterly new biography of Thomas Muntzer by a leading historian of the revolutionary Reformation movements. Controversial and complex, without an understanding of Thomas Muntzer it is impossible to gain a full understanding of the Reformation. Hitherto Muntzer has been imperfectly understood. He has often been characterized simply as an extremist: some have seen him as a theologian steeped in mystic piety, others as a rabid apocalyptic, or a relentless antagonist of Martin Luther, or an intrepid revolutionary. He has been deprecated as a restless fanatic and utopian; and just as often honoured as a selfless fighter for truth and justice. Professor Goertz has found the key to understanding the many controversial aspects of Muntzer's life in Muntzer's extraordinary ability to relate social conflicts with theological thinking, in a world where changing medieval traditions took on profound spiritual dimensions, created new social conflicts, and ultimately revolutionized the social and spiritual lives of ordinary people. Goertz shows how Muntzer was inseparably apocalyptic mystic and revolutionary
The Anabaptists by Hans-Jürgen Goertz( Book )

15 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Anabaptists were at the radical, utopian edge of the Reformation, ruthlessly repressed by Catholic, Lutheran and secular authorities alike. Hans-Jurgen Goertz gives a comprehensive account of their political and religious significance, their views and their social setting within the wider context of the Reformation. Particular attention is paid to the role and experience of women and of 'ordinary' Anabaptists in addition to those of the educated elite. While the focus of the book is on Germany, extensive coverage is also given to Anabaptism in England, Switzerland, the Netherlands and elsewhere

Religiöse Bewegungen in der frühen Neuzeit by Hans-Jürgen Goertz( Book )

10 editions published in 1993 in German and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Bewegungen, die hier beschrieben werden, entstanden im Übergang vom Mittelalter zur Neuzeit. Mit den mittelalterlichen Ketzerbewegungen verbindet sie die religiöse Nonkonformität und der Mut zum Martyrium; mit den sozialen Bewegungen, die für Bürger- und Menschenrechte eintraten, verbindet sie die revolutionäre Agitation und das Ziel gesellschaftlicher Neugestaltung. Goertz beachtet besonders die Bewegungen, die im Aufbruch der Reformation im 16. Jahrhundert entstanden sind und gewöhnlich unter dem Sammelnamen ""radikale Reformation"" zusammengefasst sind, sodann Gestalten, Gruppen und Bew

Thomas Müntzer Revolutionär am Ende der Zeiten; eine Biographie by Hans-Jürgen Goertz( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gott ist gerecht, und die Christen sind frei. Thomas Müntzer (1489-1525) wollte diese Grundeinsichten der Reformation auch politisch durchsetzen. Dafür schloss er sich dem Aufstand der Bauern an, wurde gefoltert und hingerichtet. Hans-Jürgen Goertz erzählt das Leben dieses Revolutionärs, der das Reich Gottes ganz nahe wähnte. Mit seiner mystischen Theologie und der Devise "Alles gehört allen" hat Thomas Müntzer über Jahrhunderte polarisiert. Der anfängliche Verehrer Martin Luthers wurde von diesem verachtet und angefeindet, in der Kirche wurde er totgeschwiegen. Die Anerkennung kam spät von anderer Seite: Friedrich Engels entdeckte den frühen Revolutionär, Heinrich Heine bewunderte den "heldenmütigsten und unglücklichsten Sohn des deutschen Vaterlandes", Ernst Bloch verehrte den "Theologen der Revolution", und die DDR versah ihre Fünf-Mark-Scheine mit Müntzers Konterfei. Jenseits der Kämpfe um Thomas Müntzer verortet Hans-Jürgen Goertz seine Theologie und sein Wirken in seiner Zeit und macht gerade dadurch deutlich, warum Müntzer bis heute die Gemüter erregt
