“When I die, I want to be a ghost…So I can continue to pester the bishops, priests and godless monks until that they have more trouble with a dead Luther than they could have had before with a thousand living ones.”

In his tract of 1531 against Duke George he boasted,
that people would in future say, that ” his mouth was
full of angry words, vituperation and curses on the Papists ” ;
that ” he intended to go down to his grave cursing and
abusing the miscreants “ j 1 that as long as breath remained
in him he would ” pursue them to their grave with his
thunders and lightnings “ ; 2 again, he says he will take
refuge in his maledictory prayer against the Papists in order
to ” kindle righteous hatred in his heart,” and even expounds
and recommends this prayer in mockery to his opponent 3
in all this we detect an abnormal feature which characterises
his life and temper. This abnormity is apparent not only
in the intense seriousness with which he utters the most
outrageous things, more befitting a madman than a reason
able being, but also at times in the very satires to which he
has recourse. That the Papacy would have still more to
suffer from him after he was dead, is a prophecy on which
he is ever harping : ” When I die,” he remarks, ” I shall
turn into a spirit that will so plague the bishops, parsons
and godless monks, that one dead Luther will give them
more trouble than a thousand living Luthers.” 4

every possible shape, so, in a similar way, every thought, all
