The Reformation of Wolfshausen

Teil Sechs-und-Fünfzig
Come hear about Easter in Marburg, at right

Or, read alone on the road to Emmaus.

The story so far is here.

I would think Vater Johann ought to be alarmed at the absence of the palace scholars. But perhaps that is Weirsdocentric of me.

No, you're right, Weirsdo. I'm imagining him somewhat aware that the scholars are going to deliver a favorable result for Protestantism and that his focus now is on pursuing options and wooing the people. In other words, operating from the assumption that the regime is lost but the people remain a possible buffer.

Now that I think about it, though, you're probably right that even having given up on Philip, the absence on Easter of his scholars would be something of a final blow to any hope he might have had for the status quo.
