Research of Heinz Schilling, Martin Luther: Rebel in an Age of Upheaval. The author is one of the leading German specialists in the history of Early Modern Europe, its confessional processes, and modernization. The book was first published in German in 2012, but now in 2017 St. Andrew Biblical-Theological Publishers (Izdatel’stvo BBI) has offered a Russian translation to its readers. The main feature of the book, which favorably distinguishes it among numerous biographical treatments of Luther, is that the author examines the revolutionary breakthrough of the German reformer within the broad context of social and political transformation taking place in the Holy Roman Empire, as well as in the area of international relations during the late Middle Ages.
