This chapter's time parameters extend from the Leipzig Debate to the end of Martin Luther's stay at the Wartburg. While his writing style changed somewhat, there was a certain unity forced upon his efforts by the inexorable pace of events. One thing was certain, Luther moved away from presenting theological issues in strictly academic terms. His letters became more personal, emphasizing private beliefs. Any confidence he had in a peaceful resolution of the issues through academic avenues was cruelly dashed by the events of Leipzig. The chapter talks about Luther's use of humanism from Leipzig through the Wartburg. It pursues four directions. First, it explores how Luther continued to employ or eschew humanism. Second, there was a change in the tone and strategy of Luther's defense. Third, Luther's advocacy of the gospel alone took center stage. And fourth, in the wake of the decisive encounter at Worms, what changes occurred to Luther's correspondence indicating further strategic shifts?.
