Sample text

Although I am drawing on my own research in Burgundy (central eastern France), this practice seems to have been widely prevalent in other parts of Europe where wine formed one of the principal components of the local economy. The system worked as follows: when anyone wanted to fund perpetual Masses for the dead to be performed by a local priest— either for a recently deceased relative or for one’s self—the Masses were paid for in wine futures. Thus, the local priest was promised that he could have the profits every year from the sale of wine from a particular parcel of vines owned by the endower of the Mass in return for the priest saying a special Mass for the designated person or persons on a specific date every year in perpetuity.

The first Reformer to denounce alcohol publicly was almost certainly Ludwig Haetzer (ca. 1500–29). Haetzer was a young priest from Thurgau who had already attracted attention in 1523 as the author of a treatise condemning images. This got him noticed in Zurich, where Ulrich Zwingli commissioned him to work on a number of translations because of his language skills. 16 Haetzer believed that the entire world had succumbed to excessive drinking, because Satan had praised drinking and carousing as part of the freedom of a Christian.
