    A translation into English, with commentary, of an excerpt of the biography by Dietrich Gronau, Martin Luther: Revolutionär des Glaubens

    A dissertation submitted in part requirement for the degree of MA Translation at the University of the West of England (Bristol), May 2013.
    The aim of this dissertation was to take Dietrich Gronau’s biography of Martin Luther and translate it into English. With no known English version to date, this was an opportunity to offer the first translation of the text. The name of Martin Luther may be well known to the English-speaking world, but the aim, as with the original author, was to reveal more of him as a person.
    Only an excerpt of the book was translated – the author’s preface and about two thirds of the opening chapter.
