"Veit Ludwig Von Seckendorf(1626-1692) Lutheran statesman & scholar. His fame rests on this work. As a trusted friend of all the Saxon princes he had access to original documents to a degree enjoyed by no later scholar. His work is basically a refutation of Maimbourg's Histoire du Lutheranisme. His method is to refute Maimbourg, paragraph by paragraph, from original sources, pertinent additions, often of considerable length being appended. It ""is still an indispensable source for every historian of the Reformation because of its wealth of material.""--T. Kolde, New Schaff-Herzog Enc Rel. Knowl, 10:321.
