Martin Luther (1483–1546). Luther’s trilogy of sermons on the sacraments concluded in 1519 with his first extended statement on the Lord’s Supper. In it he proposed that the laity should receive both the bread and the wine at Communion. Although Luther did not yet refute the doctrine of transubstantiation, the sermon was promptly attacked. The woodcut on the title page shows the Seven Sacraments, with the Saviour above the chalice at the centre.
