About this title


English summary: Thomas Murner's book, "On the Great Lutheran Fool," (1520) belongs to the most important and sharpest of the anti-Reformation and anti-Lutheran satires of the early 16th century. With wit, coarse comedy, and blithe malice, the recalcitrant Franciscan hurdled the cobblestones, with which his opponents had provided him in numerous pamphlets, and conjured and banished under ludicrous circumstances the personified Reformation. Martin Luther himself he ended without the sacraments and was buried in a latrine. Murder was certainly convinced of the needs for changes in the church, but he consequently rejected the Reformation. More recently, he is seen as the learned "Reactionary," however, in his outrageous satirical and auto-satirical alignment of text and image; but above all through his configuration of an enormous eloquence in conflict with a poetological abyss, from which satire drew its tense strength and also revealed itself as a text of the coming modernity. The Early Modern High German text is made accessible here in a new edition with new commentary and new afterwards as well as a new Modern High German translation. German description: Thomas Murners Buch 'Von dem grossen Lutherischen Narren'(1522) gehort zu den wichtigsten und scharfsten antireformatorischen und -lutherischen Satiren des fruhen 16. Jahrhunderts. Mit Witz, derber Komik und vergnugter Bosheit tritt der unbequeme Franziskaner hochstselbst mit Katzenkopf auf, mit dem ihn seine Gegner in zahlreichen Pamphleten versehen hatten, und beschwort und bannt unter aberwitzigen Umstanden die personifizierte Reformation. Martin Luther selbst stirbt zum Schluss ohne Sakramente und wird in einer Latrine beerdigt. Murner war gewiss selbst von der Notwendigkeit grundlegender Veranderungen in der Kirche uberzeugt, der Reformation jedoch hat er sich konsequent verweigert. Aktueller gibt der gelehrte 'Reaktionar' sich freilich in seiner uberbordenden satirischen und autosatirischen Ausrichtung von Text und Bild; v.a. aber durch seine Konfiguration enormer Sprachmachtigkeit im Konflikt mit einem poetologischen Abgrund, die der Satire ihre Spannung verleiht und sie gerade dadurch als einen Text der kommenden Moderne ausweist. Der fruhneuhochdeutsche Text wird in dieser Ausgabe in einer Neuedition mit einem neuen Kommentar und Nachwort sowie erstmals mit einer neuhochdeutschen Ubersetzung zuganglich gemacht.
