Picture: Luther’s Portrait from Das Alte Testament Deutsch, M. Luther, Wittemberg, 1523.
After the publication of the New Testament in 1522, Luther began to translate the Old Testament, which would take him 12 years. “He used a Hebrew Bible that had been published in Brescia in 1494. He used the commentaries of Nicolas of Lyra and the grammar and lexicon of Reuchlin. Luther immersed himself deeply in passages, listening to them from within, and then asked whether what he thought he was hearing agreed with the letter of the text and was grammatically acceptable” (SMU).
Starting in August 2021, the artwork for Trinity’s bulletin covers and weekly snips for Our Family Daily Prayers were found in Luther’s 1522 German translation of the New Testament, Das Newe Testament deutzsch. Both the first edition (September 1522) and the second edition (December 1522) included twenty-one full-page illustrations of the book of Revelation by Luther’s good friend, Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472–1553).
Beginning with Laetare-Lent 4(Mar 27), the artwork will come from the first part of Luther’s translation of the Old Testament, Das Alte Testament Deutsch, which included the first five books of the Old Testament. The first edition of 1523 contains full-page woodcut illustrations by Lucas Cranach the Elder.
“The 1524 edition was printed by Melchior Lotter in Wittenberg, Germany. It contains thirteen brilliantly colored illustrations made from woodcuts by Georg Lemberger, some in what is known as Fürstenkolorit. In this type of illumination, the woodcuts are colored and heightened with gold, suggesting this Bible was created for an aristocrat. Only ten copies of this edition are known to exist. Moreover, sixteenth-century prints showing Fürstenkolorit are extremely rare.” (https://collections.museumofthebible.org/artifacts/25085-luthers-pentateuch?&tab=description).
