HISTORY of Christian Theology

(c. A.D. 1490–1525) A Lutheran pastor in Germany, and former student of Luther who was convinced that he is inspired by the Holy Spirit, became a leader in the Peasant Revolt of 1525, claiming authority from the Spirit to preach the violent overthrow of the wicked in the end times. Luther asserts that Müntzer is deceived and a fanatic. Müntzer is defeated and executed. The Peasants’ War is basically defeated by the end of the year.
