This volume is a collection of Martin Luther's lectures that were given during a class he taught at the University of Wittenberg on the book of Romans. This collection is quite possibly the greatest work by Luther as he addresses all the facets of the epistle in his own sixteenth century, Augustinian monk fashion. This is a verse-by-verse exposition translated from the collection that was not published until the early twentieth century. These lectures were given shortly before the German Reformation took form but you can see in Luther's words the Reformation already forming in his mind.
