Wingin’ It 133.1: The Life of Luther (Part 35): Lucas Cranach the Elder

In the THIRTY-FIFTH episode of our Wingin’ It series on the Life of Luther, Mike and Wade continue their walk through the life of Martin Luther. While there are many important and intriguing characters they have encountered along the journey, the most fascinating might be Lucas Cranach. In Part 35 of the series the guys discuss this unsung partner of Luther’s. We recommend The Serpent and the Lamb: Cranach, Luther, and the Making of the Reformation as a great primer on Cranach and his role in the Reformation. Another great resource is the Cranach Digital Archive where you can explore not only Cranach’s art but scholarship on the great artist, mayor, pharmacist, business man, promoter, and all around talented guy. We hope you will enjoy our latest episode on the Life and Thought of Martin Luther.
