9325 - Martin Luther


Ambitiously, I am hoping to post a review a week on the earlymodernplaymobil blog. Of course you're welcome to leave comments there, but I thought it would be good fun to encourage discussion around the merits of a particular clicky or set on playmofriends too.  ;D

Where else could I start but with that best-seller, Martin Luther! You can read my thoughts here.

What is needed is a printing press but that's probably too specialist for the current lot to consider. It would also be good if they looked at some of those earlier scientists like Copernicus and Newton.

I'm planning to start a 'wishlist' series with articles considering the historical klickies that could come out. I'm hoping to start with a top-5 early modern artists, based on the success of Dürer. A top-5 early modern scientists (natural philosophers) would be great!

Junker Jörg:
Just spotted that one - splendid! Grade erst entdeckt - absolut genial!

Ich bin (natürlich) ein Luther-Fan - in beiden Versionen (auch wenn ich zugebe, daß die Originalversion der Bibel mißverständlich ist, zumal Luther in seinen späten Texten leider auch sehr judenfeindlich schrieb).

I (naturally) do like that Luther-Klicky in both versions (though I do agree the original "Ende"-text is more than misleading - even more as Luther did write some antisemitics text in his later years).

Darf ich was zu Deinem Text anmerken? Der Norden Bayerns, Franken, ist zur Hälfte katholisch, zur Hälfte evangelisch. Nürnberg war als freie Reichsstadt schon früh der Reformation beigetreten, und der Großraum ist bis heute überwiegend evangelisch.

May I comment your text?

--- Quote ---The production of a Luther klicky was a controverisal choice for a company and tourist board who are both located in Catholic Bavaria (we are surely overdue a Cardinal Cajetan counterpart?) It also upset some Jewish commentators because the original had the word “ENDE” in upper case after “Büchen des Alten Testaments”.
--- End quote ---
Nuremberg was on of the first cities to follow Luthers reformational ideas and the Bavarian North (Franken/Franconia) is divided into protestant and catholic areas - Nuremberg still beeing more protestant ;-).
And it's "Bücher" (not "Büchen") - German plural forms are a wee bit special  ::).

I'm looking forward to seeing more of that kind!
