Interrogating Luther’s Biographers

The quincentennial celebration of the German Reformation in 2017 also marked an increase in scholarly biographies and historiographies reconceptualizing Martin Luther. Recent projects have framed Luther in new theological, psychological, historical, and political contexts. For this potential co-sponsored panel we invite papers and panels proposals that interrogate Luther’s recent biographers and historiographers. What new consensuses have emerged? What approaches are privileged in the recent rejuvenation of Luther scholarship? What themes and trends become central for Luther’s biographers?
