Georg Witzels Widerlegung der Schmalkaldischen Artikel / Simon Gerber

When Martin Luther published his Smalcald Articles in 1538, Georg Witzel, who had returned to the Catholic party some years earlier, offered a polemic response; Luther and his sect, he wrote, did not heal but rather exacerbated the schism. The two foci of Witzel's Anti-Luther, the continuity with the undivided, original, and apostolic church and the doctrine of justification, indicate already the crucial points of many later attempts for ecumenical agreement.
