  • NEVER !!
  • Luther was enlightened by becoming a professor. After dwelling on his faith, Luther came to the realization that the key to salvation was through faith and not fear of God. He began to study the bible and started questioning the Catholic Church and its beliefs which contrasted against the bibles morals. He realised that God and the bible should have supremacy, not the religious officials. Luther collected a list of all the beliefs and actions the Catholic church participated in that contrast against the bibles teachings; One being the buying and selling of indulgences. Luther believed you could not “buy” your way to heaven.
  • MARTIN LUTHER IN HIDING...
  • Latin
  • German
  • Luther wrote a list of all the things the church was doing that contrasted against the bibles beliefs. He criticised the power of the pope, the extreme wealth of the church, and the selling of indulgences. He believed the bible shouldn't just be written in Latin and everyone had the right to read the Bible. The list Luther wrote was then posted on the church's door in Wittenberg, Germany in 1517. He gained support from followers but criticism from the church. Luther's ideas spread globally due to Gutenberg's printing press.
  • LIAR !!
  • You need to believe me!
  • The 95 Theses Written by: Martin Luther
  • HERETIC!
  • After receiving a variety of support and confrontation, Pope Leo X issued publically that Luther's ideas and propositions were ridiculous. He gave him 120 days to return to Rome. Martin refused this request which led to him being excommunicated from the Catholic Church. On April 17, 1521, Martin went before the diet (an assembly) in worms (Germany). Luther refused to reject his works unless the scripture said it was incorrect. He stated "Here I stand, I can do no other" which is now a very well known statement. Mayhem broke out with the conclusion of Luther's refusal to back down.
  • Martin, a hero to some whilst a heretic to others. Luther left Worms and went into hiding in Wartburg near Eisenach for 9 months. It was then that Martin worked on translating the bible into German. 1522, he married and had 6 children. 1534, the complete translation of the bible was published. His influence spread across eastern and northern Europe. Martin Luther died on the 18th February 1546 in Eisleben. Martin Luther was the beginning of the reformations and lived an incredible life displaying values of confidence and sticking up for what he believed in.
