Catholics and Protestants have, since the earliest days of the Reformation, held markedly different views about the Virgin Mary. In Reforming Mary Beth Kreitzer examines the development of Lutheran views on this subject as expressed in 16th-century Lutheran published sermons, starting with the earliest of Luther's own Reformation sermons.

Review quote

This is a very well written and interesting volume ... well worth reading ... very user-friendly ... The volume is well structured, and can be recommended not only to historians and undergraduate students of the Reformation, but to interested members of the public. * Church Times * ...a lively, impressionistic, and informative portrait of Mary's role in Lutheran preaching. * Jonathan Trigg, The Journal of Theological Studies *
