The Protestant Reformers
affirmed their belief
that Mary, while remaining every-virgin, was
truly the Mother of God.
It is an article of faith that Mary is Mother of the Lord and still a virgin. ...
Christ, we believe, came forth from
womb left perfectly intact
The Works of Luther,
English translation by Pelikan, Concordia,
St. Louis, v. 11, pp. 319-320; v. 6. p. 510
This immaculate and perpetual virginity forms, therefore, the just theme
of our eulogy. Such was the work of the Holy Ghost, who at the Conception
and birth of the Son so favoured the Virgin Mother as to impart to her
preserving inviolate her perpetual virginity
(Weimer's, v. 7, p. 572)
