Publisher Description

An Open Letter on Translating is a September, 1530 letter to Luther's critics concerning his translation of the Bible from Latin into German. This was very controversial at the time and it led to a lot of disagreement (even wars) over who should be allowed to read the Bible and who should interpret its meaning. Luther defends his translation in his very best combative style. He correctly notes that not all turns of phrases translate literally from one language to another.
