1. Elector John Frederick

1. Cf. Günther Wartenberg, “Luthers Beziehungen zu den sächsischen Fürsten,” in Junghans, 549–71, esp. 554–62. Georg Vlentz, Johann Friedrich der Grossmütige, 1503– 1554: Festschrift zurn 400/ahrigen Geburtstage des Kurfürsten, namens des Vereins für Thüringische Geschichte und Altertumskunde, ed. Thüringische Historische Kommission, Beiträge zur neueren Geschichte Thüringens, 3 vols. (Jena: G. Fischer, 1903–8), vol. 1, pts. 1 and 2.

2. WA, TR 2, nos. 1906b, 1909, 1931–33, 2617. WA, TR 3, no. 2986. Cf. WA, TR 2, no. 1558 = LW 55:156–57. WA, TR 2, no. 1564.

3. WA, Br 6:353–54, 391–92. With some certainty, the letter “to a nobleman” in WA, Br 7:40–42 was written to Rietesel and belongs in this context. The arguments against Enders in the WA can hardly be supported.

4. WA 403:108, lines 9–10.

5. Wartenberg, “Luthers Beziehungen,” 923–24 n. 121.

6. Cf. Eike Wolgast, Die Wittenberger Theologie und die Politik der evangelischen Stände: Studien zu Luthers Gutachten in politischen Fragen, QFRG, vol. 47 (Gütersloh: G. Mohn, 1977), 285–99, which has a somewhat different nuance.

7. WA, Br 7:349, line 50–350, line 52 = LW 50:128–29. WA, Br 7:372, lines 15–21. WA 41:xxxi; 516–20. WA, TR 4, no. 4953. WA, TR 6, no. 7054. Roderich Schmidt, “Die Torgauer Hochzeit 1536,” in Paul Althaus, ed., Solange es “heute” heisst: Festgabe für Rudolf Hermann zum 70. Geburtstag (Berlin: Evangelische Verlagsanstalt, 1957), 234–50. Hans Georg Thümmel, “Der Greifswalder Croy-Teppich und das Bekenntnisbild des 16. Jahrhunderts,” Theologische Versuche 11 (1979):187–214.

8. WA, TR 2, no. 1255.

9. WA, Br 7:352, lines 1–4 = LW 50:130–31.

10. WA 403:214, lines 2–11; 230, line 5–231, line 13. WA, TR 1, no. 628. WA, Br 7:182, lines 40–45.

11. WA, TR 1, no. 653. WA, TR 2, no. 1938. WA, TR 3, nos. 3468, 3514 = LW 54:205–6, 218–19. Cf. WA 42:380, line 22–381, line 5 = LW 2:168–69.

12. WA, TR 2, nos. 2721–22. WA, Br 7:393.

13. WA, Br 6:377–78.

14. WA, Br 6:230–31.

15. WA, Br 7:90–91, 122–23, 139–40.
