Martin Luther's Table Talk (German: Tischreden) is a collection of his sayings. It was compiled by Johannes Mathesius and published at Eisleben in 1566.[1]

Mathesius spoke enthusiastically of the privilege of eating with Luther and hearing him converse. Earlier notetakers had written down only the serious remarks of Luther, but Mathesius also wrote down the facetious or even damaging remarks, a sign of the increasing reverence in which Luther was held.
