Melanchthon's consideration of the Interim was written amidst the harsh realities of the Protestant defeat in the Schmalkaldic War and the threat of the imperial takeover of his beloved Wittenberg University. It is conciliatory in tone, yet it aroused the Magdeburgers and other "gnesio-Lutherans" (true Lutherans) against him, since they believed that he had abandoned fundamental Lutheran theological principles.VD 16, M 4327.
