Mark Edwards

Formerly Associate Dean for Academic Administration, Professor Mark Edwards is now Senior Advisor to the Dean at Harvard Divinity School. He has written four books and numerous articles on Martin Luther and the German Reformation. The most recent book, entitled Printing, Propaganda, and Martin Luther (University of California Press, 1994; reprint, Fortress Press, 2005), deals with the West's first “mass media campaign” and Luther's pivotal role as both subject and object in the struggle for the hearts and minds of sixteenth-century Christians. Edwards has taught introductory courses in computer science at Wellesley College and Purdue University, and has developed three commercial software programs, including For Comment, a pioneer “groupware” product that was designated one of the best products of 1987 by PC Magazine.
