“German Theology”

(Deutsche Theologie; Theologia deutsch). Book written ca. the end of the 14th or beginning of the 15th c. and containing a summary of fundamentals of Christian religion, “a noble booklet of the right understanding concerning Adam and Christ, and how Adam should die and Christ arise in us,” as Luther puts it, who pub. the tract as a fragment 1516 and in complete form 1518. It is a product of Ger. mysticism.* Its unknown author, apparently active at Frankfurt, is often referred to as the Frankfurter (or Frankforter).
