Kierkegaard’s point of view on Luther in his Journals
[El punto de vista de Kierkegaard sobre Lutero en sus Diarios]
Jose Garcia Martin – Dinara G. Vasbieva – Jozef Polacko – Hedviga Tkacova
Through a selection of texts from the Kierkegaard´s Journals, an analysis is made of the Danish theologian's criticism and father of the Protestant Reformation: Luther. Starting with the figure of Socrates, the article looks at the most important aspects of this critique: the concept of the Reformation, the relationship to the Holy Scriptures and the concept of Christianity, the Christian-political relationship, the conditions of martyrdom and imitation, and the role of divine Grace. The conclusion is that while Luther can be understood as a corrective to the Christianity of his time, Kierkegaard was also a corrective to his own time.
Key words: Luther, Christianity, reformer, martyr, model, grace
