To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:
Almost the first duty that fell to his lot was the corona- tion of the king. This had been delayed so long because of the break with the old Church. Under the circumstances probably no bishop was willing to crown him, and for his part the king would not receive his crown at the hands of an authority he did not recognize. On the other hand, Bugenhagen represented no papal or political ambition and functioned only as a minister of the gospel. On the twelfth of August, under impressive ceremonies,... Bugenhagen crowned the king, acting as a "true bishop, " to use the words of Luther. 7 All the pomp of the realm was displayed, and the traditional regalia and rites of ordination were employed, being interpreted by Bugenhagen in an evangelical sense. In his address he did not hesitate to impress on the king's conscience his duty as a ruler to protect the Church, and the king for his part vowed to adhere to the pure gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide ministers and teachers. Thus was the Reformation formally committed, with the crown, to the Danish dynasty by a simple preacher.
