“A shoemaker, a smith, a farmer, each has their occupation and work; and yet, at the same time, all are eligible to act as priests and bishops. Every one of them in their occupation or handicraft ought to benefit and serve every other in such a way that the various trades are all directed to the best advantage of the community, and promote the well-being of body and soul, just as all organs of the body serve each other. “

Martin Luther, “An Appeal to the Ruling Class,” 1520
