RARE FIRST EDITION unter this title, reprinted four more times in the same year. This is the enlarged new edition of the Sermons vom Wucher (Sermon on Usury, 1519), which reaffirms Luther's well-known conservative stance against interest, usury and sureties. "Luther does not reject trade in general ... The basic error of most commercial transactions lies in the fact that they want to make the goods as expensive as possible; instead it should be said, as expensive as right and fair" (transl. from Roscher 60).
