Amsdorf was one of Martin Luther's closest friends over many years and taught with Luther on the university faculty in Wittenberg. Although he served briefly as the bishop of Naumburg and played an important role in the reform of the city of Goslar, he is remembered primarily as a leader of the Gnesio‐Lutherans, who opposed Melanchthon on the role of good works in justification and the usefulness of philosophy in theology. He also opposed the acceptance of the Leipzig Interim by the adiaphorists, Melanchthon and Bugenhagen.
