greater number of Luther's friends earnestly dissuaded
him from going to Worms. Even Spalatin, the secretary
and confidential adviser of the Elector Frederick, sent
him a pressing message exhorting him on no account to
enter that city. Luther replied, " Were there as many
devils in Worms as tiles upon the roofs of the houses,
still would I enter," (" Wenn so viel Teufel zu Worms
waren als Ziegel auf den Dachern, doch wollt' ich
hinein.") He arrived in the city on the i6th of April,
and appeared before the Diet the following day. When
asked if he was the author of the works produced against
him, containing the passages which had been condemned,
he replied in the affirmative. On being again asked
whether he was prepared to retract the objectionable
doctrines contained in them, he answered that, as this
question concerned the word of God, the Christian faith,
and the salvation of souls, it was of great importance
that he should not speak rashly, lest he should offend
against the word of God : he therefore desired that time
might be allowed him for consideration. The next day
he was again brought before the Diet. While he ad-
mitted that in some instances he might have written
with less humility and more violence than became his
ecclesiastical character, he refused to retract anything
that he had said, unless it could be shown to be con-
trary to the Scriptures ; at the same time, he boldly
repeated and defended several of his positions which
had been objected to. Hereupon Charles and the other
favourers of the Catholic cause refused to hear him any
further. He was commanded to leave Worms. He
accordingly returned to Saxony. As he was journeying
on the borders of the Thuringian Forest, he was sud-
denly seized by a number of warriors in masks, and
hurried off to the solitary castle of Wartburg, where
his ecclesiastical habit was exchanged for the dress
and sword of a knight. This whole proceeding was a
stratagem of Frederick to protect the Reformer against
the designs of his enemies. Luther had previously been
apprised of the scheme. He remarks, in one of his letters,
that he scarcely knew himself in his strange disguise.

Immediately after the departure of Luther, Aleander,
the Papal legate, prevailed on Charles to give the edict
against him the sanction of the imperial signature and
seal. It was declared, in the name of the emperor, that,
as soon as the term of his safe-conduct had expired,
Luther should be seized and held in durance until they
should be informed how to deal with him.

Luther remained in the castle of Wartburg about ten
months. He left it in March, 1522, and returned to Wit-
tenberg in order to rebuke the excesses into which some
of his former disciples had fallen. In 1524 he laid aside
the monastic dress; and in 1525 he married Catharina
von Bora, who had once been a nun. Luther completed
his German version of the Old Testament in 1534; his
translation of the New Testament had appeared in 1522.
These translations, by their extensive circulation, as well
as by the force and beauty of the language, have exerted
a most important influence upon German literature,
which may almost be said to date its origin from thei;
composition.

Frederick the Wise, Luther's faithful friend and pro-
tector, died in 1525, and was succeeded by his nephew
John, who was an open and devoted adherent of the
great Reformer. During the latter portion of his life,
Luther was held in the highest consideration by most
of the princes of Germany, where his doctrines continued
to spread, and finally, even during his lifetime, extended
to Moravia, Bohemia, Denmark, and Sweden. He died
at Eisleben, the iSth of February, 1546, in the sixty-third
year of his age. Among Luther's voluminous works,
his translation of the Bible, already mentioned, is the
most important. Besides his controversial writings, he
has left numerous letters, sermons, etc. His " Table-
Talk," ("Tischreden,") which is, says Carlyle, "the
most interesting now of all the books proceeding from
him," consists of sayings and anecdotes collected by
Luther's friends after his death.

LUTHER



1598



LUTZOW



Although the character of Luther was especially dis-
tinguished by ardent zeal and unconquerable courage,
yet on important occasions he could exercise the greatest
moderation as well as discretion. The intrepidity with
which he faced the dangers that threatened him at Worms
is not more deserving of our praise than the admirable
prudence and tact which he displayed in his defence on
that memorable occasion. The fierce invective and coarse
vituperation for which his controversial writings have
been censured, are palliated by the consideration that
such was the almost universal custom of that age. If
his opposition was violent, it was not malignant or un-
forgiving. When his bitterest enemy, Tetzel, the man
who had excited Luther's fiercest indignation, was in
misfortune and disgrace, forsaken by all his friends, he
received from his generous adversary a letter of con-
dolence and consolation. As a reformer, Luther sought
to introduce such changes only as he deemed to be im-
peratively demanded ; and to the last he clung to some
of the doctrines of his early faith which were rejected
by all or nearly all the other Protestants. He was always
an advocate of peace where peace could be had without
the sacrifice of any great principle ; and, so long as he
lived, he steadfastly opposed, both by his counsels and
by his influence, those religious contests which after his
death desolated Germany.

"Justification by Faith" formed the great central doc-
trine in Luther's system of theology, as unconditional
election and reprobation was the central idea of that of
Calvin. The great aim of the latter would seem to have
been to prove the utter and absolute helplessness of
man ; and, in the march of his inexorable logic, he some-
times appears equally regardless of the hopes of man-
kind and of the justice of God. Luther, while ascribing
everything in the act of conversion to the grace of God,
seems not so completely to close the door to human
aspirations, taking for his motto. " If thou canst believe
all things are possible to him that believeth."

Luther is described as a man of low stature but hand-
some person, with a lively complexion and falcon eyes.
His voice was clear and of great power. On behold-
ing his picture, Melanchthon is said to have exclaimed,
" Each one of thy words was a thunderbolt !" (" Fulmina
erant singula verba tua.") Carlyle says of him, "No
more valiant man ever lived in that Teutonic kindred
whose character is valour : the thing he will quail before
exists not on this earth or under it." " He was," observes
Heine, "not only the greatest, but the most German,
man of our history. In his character all the faults and all
the virtues of the Germans are combined on the largest
scale. He had qualities which are very seldom found
united, which we are accustomed to regard as irrecon-
cilable antagonisms. . . . He was not only the tongue,
but the sword, of his time. Sometimes he was wild
as the storm that uproots the oak, and again he was
as gentle as the zephyr which dallies with the violet."
In a not dissimilar strain, Carlyle contrasts the wild,
unconquerable energy with the affectionate tenderness
of Luther's character: "A most gentle heart withal,
full of pity and love, as, indeed, the truly valiant heart
ever is." Alluding to Luther's fondness for music, he
adds, " Death-defiance on the one hand, and such love
of music on the other, between these two, all great
things had room."

Those who may desire to see a less favourable view of
the great Reformer's character and influence, are referred
to the article " Luther" in the " Nouvelle Biographia
Ge'nerale," from the pen of the editor, Dr. Hoefer.

war of 1741, and, having served with distinction in Ger-
many, became a marshal of France. He gave a home to
]. J. Rousseau at Montmorenci. (See the notice of his
wife, below.) Died in 1764.

See ROUSSEAU, "Confessions."

Luxembourg, de, written also Luxemburg, (FRAN-
C.OIS HENRI DE MONTMORENCI,) Due, a celebrated mar-
shal of France, born in Paris in 1628, was a son of the
Count de Montmorenci-Bouteville, and a cousin-german
of the great Prince de Conde. For his conduct at Lens
in 1648 he was made marechal-de-camp. From devotion
to the Prince of Conde, he served several campaigns
against France between 1653 and 1659, during which
period Cond^ commanded the Spanish army. Having
received a pardon from the king in 1660, he married the
heiress of the house of Luxembourg, and assumed that
name. In 1672 he obtained command of an army which
invaded Holland and took several towns. His skilful
retreat from Utrecht to Charleroi in November, 1673,
raised him to the rank of the first captains of that age.
In 1674 he commanded the right wing of Conde's army
at Senef, and in 1675 received a marshal's baton. He
gained victories over the allies in Flanders in the cam-
paign of 1677, which was followed by a long peace.
Having incurred the enmity of Louvois, he was confined
in the Bastille fourteen months on a charge of sorcery.
In 1690, Louis XIV.. against whom Austria, Spain, and
England had formed a coalition, gave the chief com-
mand of his army to Marshal Luxembourg, who, since
the death of Turenne and Conde, was the ablest of his
generals. He defeated the allies at Fleurus in 1690.
In the campaign of 1691 he defeated William III. of
England at the great battle of Steenkerke. He was victo-
rious over the same enemy and leader at Neerwinden,
or Landen, in 1693. He died in January, 1695, after
which the army of Louis gained few victories. " Even
the admirers of William III.," says Macaulay, "were
forced to own that in the field he was not a match for
Luxembourg," whose "judgment was clearest and surest
when responsibility pressed heaviest on him and when
difficulties gathered thickest around him." "He gained
immense renown at William's expense ; but he had not
the art of improving a victory, while William, of all gen-



erals, was best qualified to repair a defeat." (" History
of England," vol. iv. chap, xix.)

He fought against Louis XI. at Montlheri about 1464,
but was soon after won over by the high office of Con-
stable of France, and married the queen's sister, Marie
de Savoie. He was called the pivot of the principal
intrigues of that time. His perfidy provoked Louis XL
and Charles the Bold to declare him their common
enemy. He was beheaded in 1475.

BERT,) Due, the favourite of Louis XIII. of France,
was born in Languedoc in 1578. As the companion
of Louis in youth, he acquired an ascendency over him,
and about 1616 he became his most powerful minister.
His cupidity and ambition excited many enemies, among
whom was the king's mother ; but through his influence
she was sent into exile. In 1621 he was appointed Con-
stable of France, and declared war against the Hugue-
nots. It appears that Louis had resolved to discard him ;
but before that purpose was effected Luynes died, in
December, 1621. He was a brother of Marshal Chaulnes,
