Studien zur Entwicklung einer neuen Heiligen-Ikonographie im Rahmen einer Kanonisationskampagne umBerlin,s. Such studies will surely be helped by other articles contained in the book under discussion, featuring analyses of Lutherbilder produced by theologians, preachers, historians or filmmakers, which, in turn, must have exerted profound influence on painters and sculptors as well as their patrons.
An interesting instance of such a contemporisation, used in order to defeat Luther and his teachings, is a painting by Barthel Bruyn the Elder, The Temptation of Christ, in which the Satan has the facial features of the Reformer of Wittenberg and is wearing his characteristic gown.
