Description
Summary:Martin Luther lent a key importance to the instruction and education of children (both girls and boys), which he thought made human beings capable of serving God in the spiritual kingdom (as preachers) as well as in the earthly kingdom and of fighting against the devil. Luther developed these ideas not only in his treatise To the Councilmen of all Cities in Germany (1524) and Sermon on Keeping Children in School (1530) but also in some of his major Reformation writings, in his catechisms, in his writings on married life and even in his letters.
