Overview

Rejected in the sixteenth century by both Protestants and Catholics, yet hailed by Marxist historians as a forerunner of the Marxist revolution, this volume tells Mntzer's story and offers a critical assessment of him in light of his extant works, with particular attention to the religious foundations of his revolutionary program.
