  • Descrição: Martin Luther has been viewed from many different perspectives: social, political, religious, economic, and psychological. One area in which little research has been conducted is from the numismatic viewpoint. Since the beginning of the Reformation, there have been over one thousand medallic pieces struck to commemorate Luther and important events in the history of the Reformation. In fact, almost every aspect of Luther's life has been described or depicted on medals and coins. The purpose of this essay is to show the importance of medallic art as a primary source for historical research, in this case Luther and the Reformation, and, in light of the vast numismatic evidence, examine the validity of Erwin Iserloh's argument that the Theses were not posted.
