  • I'm Pope Leo V- Head of the Catholic church
  • Just one indulgence please?
  • This church is corrupt!
  • There once lived a man by the name of Pope Leo V. This man was the ruler of the Catholic Church. Pope Leo use to sell indulgences to people who believed that the letter would save them from purgatory.
  • I will nail the 95 thesis to that door
  • Civilians would buy these when they have done something wrong, they then feared being punished by God through purgatory. The catholic church continued to make money from selling these indulgences that meant absolutely nothing.
  • I will not recant the 95 thesis
  • Then one day a man came along by the name of Martin Luther, Martin believed that the church was corrupt. He tried to tell people that but wasn't working to well. So he then made a big piece of paper called the 95 thesis.
  • Come read the translated bible.
  • The 95 thesis was a big piece of paper of questions and propositions about how the Catholic church was being corrupt. Luther then nailed the 95 thesis to the church door and attempted to advertise the fact that he the church was corrupt and buying indulgences was pointless.
  • The word gradually spread across europe, the printing press was to thank for this. The Catholic Church soon found out about what Luther had did and then ordered Martin Luther to a meeting called the 'Diet of Worms' where the church's council met where they decided to give him 120 days to recant the 95 thesis or he will be cut from the catholic Church.
  • Martin did not recant the thesis and then was cut from the church. Martin Luther then went into hiding for several years where he begun to translate the new testament so that everyone could read it not just the members from the church. Once he finished translating it people begun to realise how the church was corrupt. The Catholic church then stopped selling indulgences soon after.
