Luther was swift to publish this scathing response to Henry’s Assertio Septem Sacramentorum. The woodcut title page, attributed to the workshop of Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472 – 1553), indicates Luther’s opinion of his opponents: on the left, a jester blowing a wind instrument; on the right a fat cleric with the head of a pig.
