Part of the Book at Lunchtime series

The Book at Lunchtime series looks at Professor Lyndal Roper's new book 'Martin Luther - Renegade and Prophet' . When Martin Luther nailed a sheet of paper to the church door of a small university town on 31 October 1517, he set off a process that changed the Western world for ever. Luther's ideas spread like wildfire. In this historical biography, the author reveals the often contradictory psychological forces that drove Luther forward. Professor Roper is joined by Professor Laura Marcus (Goldsmiths' Professor of English Literature, University of Oxford), Dr Simeon Zahl (Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology, University of Nottingham), and Professor Jas' Elsner (Fellow and Tutor in Classics, Corpus Christi College; Humfry Payne Senior Research Fellow in Classical Archaeology and Art, Faculty of Classics; Professor of Late Antique Art, Faculty of Classics). Chaired by Professor Almut Suerbaum (Associate Professor in German, University of Oxford).
