Wingin’ It 166.1: The Life of Luther (Part 49) – Spalatin

In the FORTY-NINTH session of our Wingin’ It series on the Life of Luther, Wade and Jason discuss George Spalatin, a man who was Luther’s friend, Frederick the Wise’s privy secretary and chaplain, John Frederick’s tutor, an advisor to future electors, a pastor in Altenburg, and a whole lot more. Name an important Lutheran Reformation event and there’s a good chance Spalatin was either there or working behind the scenes. We hope that you will enjoy this discussion.
