The Death of Martin Luther


“Kate’s anxious foreboding had been realized; the tragedy had reached its climax. Her concern for her ailing, distant husband had not been without reason. The dear man, the grand reformer, the brilliant teacher and preacher, the loving father and faithful husband was no more. Although Luther’s death was not unexpected, it was to early. Too early for the church and for those who longed for her renewal. Too early for the family he had treasured. Too early for the world he had scolded so often. Luther’s death was too early for Kate, with whom he had argued and contradicted yet whom he loved and valued above all women,” (A Reformation Life Katharina Von Bora 173).
