"Cannons and fire-arms ..." Quote of Martin Luther

Tuesday, November 11, 2014
Cannons and fire-arms are cruel and damnable machines; I believe them to have been the direct suggestion of the Devil. If Adam had seen in a vision the horrible instruments his children were to invent, he would have died of grief.
Martin Luther
Martin Luther (1483-1546), German leader of the Protestant Reformation. Table Talk, sct. 820 (1569).
