Martin Luther: The Hero of the Reformation by Henry Eyster Jacobs

Henry Eyster Jacobs’ biography of Luther was originally published in 1898 as part of Putnam’s Heroes of the Reformation series for self-learners. Professor Samuel Macauley Jackson, says this about it an early Putnam catalog: A series of biographies of the leaders in the Protestant Reformation. The Literary skill and the standing as scholars of the writers who have agreed to prepare these biographies will, it is believed, ensure for them a wide acceptance on the part not only of special students of the period but of the general reader.
