Response to onager (Original post)

15. A more famous example, Martin Luther.

Luther is of course famous for his touchingly sentimental book "On the Jews and Their Lies" and his letter encouraging the German peasantry entitled "The Lying Thieving Murderous Peasants."

Luther is quite noted for his encounters with demons, most famously Caim, or Caym, listed as the President of Hell in the Pseudomonarchia Daemonorum. Luther went so far as to debate Caim, the details of the argument are purposefully omitted from Luther's writings. Is it so unlikely that Caim might have influenced Luther subtly to be so gentle with his fellow men?
