The Table Talk of Martin Luther free pdf Excerpt from The Table Talk of Martin Luther "Upon which divine work, or Discourses, the Reformation, began before in Germany, was wonderfully promoted and increased, and spread both here in England, and other countries besides. "But afterwards it so fell out, that the pope then living, viz., Gregory XIII., understanding what great hurt and prejudice he and his popish religion had already received, by reason of the said Luther's Divine Discourses, and also fearing that the same might bring further contempt and mischief upon himself, and upon the popish church, he therefore, to prevent the same, did fiercely stir up and instigate the emperor then in being, viz., Rudolpbus II. to make an edict throughout the whole empire, that all the aforesaid printed books should be burnt- and also, that it should be death for any person to have or keep a copy thereof, but also to burn the same- which edict was speedily put in execution accordingly- insomuch that not one of all the said printed books, nor so much as any one copy of the same, could be found out nor heard of in any place. "Yet it pleased God, that, anno 1626, a German gentleman, named Casparus Van Sparr, with whom, in the time of my staying in Germany about king James's business, I became very familiarly known and acquainted, having occasion to build upon the old foundation of a house, wherein his grandfather dwelt at that time, when the said edict was published in Germany for the burning of the aforesaid books- and digging deep into the ground, under the said old foundation, one of the said original books was there happily found, lying in a deep obscure hole, being wrapped in a strong linen cloth, which was waxed all over with bees-wax, within and without- whereby the book was preserved fair, without any blemish "And at the same time Ferdinandns II. being emperor in Germany, who was a severe enemy and persecutor of the protestant religion, the aforesaid gentleman, and grandchild to him that bad bidden the said books in that obscure hole, fearing that if the said emperor should get kuowledge that one of the said books was yet forthcoming, and in his custody, whereby not only himself might be brought into trouble, but also the book in danger to be destroyed, as all the rest were so long before- and also calling me to mind, and knowing that I had the high Dutch tongue very perfect, did send the said original book over hither into England unto me- and therewith did write unto me a letter, wherein he related the passages of the preserving and finding out the said book. "And also he earnestly moved me in his letter, that for the advancement of God's glory, and of Christ's church, I would take the pains to translate the said book, to the end, that that most excellent divine work of Luther might be brought again to light.
