Social History and Biblical Exegesis
See Fernand Braudel, "History and the Social Sciences," in Economy and
Society in Early Modern Europe. Essays from ('Annales, " ed. Peter Burke (London,
1972), 11-42; and Emmanuel LeRoy Ladurie, "History that Stands Still," in his
The Mind and Method of the Historian, trans. Sian Reynolds and Ben Reynolds
(Chicago, 1978), 1-27.

Ladurie, Montaillou. The Promised Land of Error (New York, 1978); idem,
Carneval in Romans (New Y~rk, 1979). One could object that these excursions into
story telling are still so concerned with extracting large social lessons that the
recovery of narrative is far from complete.

express the union of Christians with Christ in the Sacrament; cf. Luther, Werke:
Kritische Gesammtausgabe (Weimarer Ausgabe) (Weimar, 1883-), 2:743 [hereinaf-
ter cited as WA]: "communicare auff latein heyst diss gemeynschafft empfahen,
wilches wir auff deutsch sagen zum sacrament gehen."
