Overview

In tracing theological approaches to music in the era between Luther and Bach, the author reveals the variety and tension in German Lutheran theology. Both dogmatism and devotionalism helped shape Lutheran spirituality. The introduction of Italian Baroque style into church music, however, evoked controversies which pitted Pietism against Orthodoxy and preachers against musicians.
