Johannes Schilling, Luther´s hymns as his summa theologiae

A theologians theology is often reconstructed from his academic lectures or from publications which deal in detail with certain subjects or special problems. My approach to Luther´s theology is to show in an overlook and in some examples that his theology can be understood and drawn from his hymns, and that his hymns have been the most widespread sources to make his understanding of the Christian faith known to people all over the world. If we had nothing but his hymns we would even know the true core of Luther´s theology.

Risto Saarinen, Recognition and Masculinity: Luther on the Song of Songs

Luther's lecture on the Song of Songs has remained unknown in Reformation studies, mainly because his idea of interpreting the text as political allegory has been found so odd. My reading of this text applies two traditional hermeneutical procedures: 1) the power-distributing macrostructures of recognition (e.g. lord-servant, bridegroom-bride) and 2) the dialogical microstructures between the speaker and the addressee.
Somewhat surprisingly, these procedures reveal Luther's appreciation of peace and even pacifism, as well as his emphasis on the bridal properties of church teachers. While Luther's political reading is original, it also continues the medieval topics of lordship and bridal allegory.
