Auteur: Wu Ming presents Thomas Müntzer
Titel: Sermon to the Princess
The Reformation was originally an attack on a corrupt Church, sparked by Martin Luther. Thomas Müntzer, originally Luther’s protégé, became increasingly convinced that the Reformation did not go far enough. In 1524 he became one of the leaders of the Peasants’ War, where the struggle against the Church exploded into a revolutionary attempt to realize the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Wu Ming, the five Italian authors who, under the name Luther Blissett, wrote the best-selling novel Q about the Radical Reformation, ask why Müntzer has inspired radicals for almost 500 years. Wu Ming are five Italian authors who are authors of the novels ’54, Manituana, and Q.
