Argula von Grumbach (1492–c. 1554) was a Bavarian noblewoman who became the first Protestant woman writer, publishing letters and poems defending Martin Luther’s groundbreaking theology.
In this installment of “Story Time with Sarah,” Sarah introduces Rachel, Erin, and Bri, to one of the coolest ladies of the Lutheran Reformation you’ve probably never heard of. Learn about how Lady Argula’s education, life experiences, and “straight shooting” personality each prepared her for the distinctive role she played in the early years after Luther’s 95 Theses — and about the high price she and her family paid for her outspoken promotion of Lutheran ideas.
