Witte on The Legal Turn of the Reformation @EmoryLaw

John Witte, Jr., Emory School of Law, has published The Legal Turn of the Reformation at Luther--95 Treasures 451 (Wittenberg: Stiftung Luthergedenstaetten in Sachsen-Anhalt, 2017). Here is the abstract.
The Lutheran Reformation revolutionized both church and state, theology and law. This brief essay sketches the legal influence of the Reformation, building on Luther’s opening call for religious freedom and his more complex theory of the two kingdoms.
