The introduction sets forth the three goals of the book: to explain the varying interpretations of the Lord's Supper that emerged between 1518 and 1525, to describe how those interpretations were received and modified in popular pamphlets, and to demonstrate the significant role played by Andreas Bodenstein von Karlstadt in the early eucharistic controversy.
