Translated title of the contribution: The time of the good postils

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The article demonstrates how the question of female admission to priesthood was answered in the affirmative in the highly popular postils by Antonius Corvinus (German 1535, Danish 1539-40) and Johan Spangenberg (German 1543, Danish 1560). Moreover, Martin Luther’s preface to both these books was not just a recommendation but a genuine imprimatur.
