Storyboard Text

  • Please save me, if I live I vow to become a Monk!
  • The promotion of selling indulgences is wrong! By showing the people of the Church my 95 Thesis they will understand what the Church is doing is a scam.
  • By translating the Bible I have allowed anyone no matter their social power to have the ability to read the Bible whenever they please.
  • In Germany, a man called Martin Luther was a student studying to be a lawyer. Luther found himself caught in a lightning storm, he was helpless so he called out to Saint Anne vowing that if he was to be saved he would become a Monk and preach the word of the Lord.
  • You are not to come back to this Church, consider yourself excommunicated of your heretic actions.
  • During the time of Luther's life as a monk, he disagreed on what the church was promoting. So he wrote a document called the 95 Thesis addressing the Roman Catholic Church's corrupt practice of selling "indulgences" as a way of which to revert sin. He used the 95 thesis as a way of announcing what he believed to be the correct message that was to be portrayed in the Bible.
  • My 95 Thesis were a success all throughout Germany. I have given people a new perspective of what the Church is doing is wrong
  • In the action of Martin Luther’s quest forjustice for the catholic church included the translation of the Bible from Hebrew to Greek. In doing this it allowed anyone seeking to read the scriptures of the Bible to do so and understand what was written. This was one of the most significant actions during the Protestant Reformation and divide of the Catholic Church as it meant that the Pope no longer had the power or the title of being the only person eligible to read the Bible.
  • I have now created my own religion based around my beliefs called "lutheranism"
  • As part of the Reformation, Martin Luther took it upon himself to then publish his 95 Thesis to the printing press, where his thesis were shared and communicated throughout Europe. Because of this action the Roman Catholic Church responded by excommunicating Luther from the Church for his actions resembling what they considered to be heretic.
  • After Luther's 95 Thesis were spread throughout the country of Germany it swept across many other countries throughout the world, dominating and questioning people's beliefs of the Catholic Church, creating a clean break from the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope's authority.
  • The interest that Martin Luther's 95 Thesis had obtained resulted in a divide of the Roman Catholic Church. From this, the protestantism that had emerged was related back to the effects of Luther's writings which changed the course of religious and cultural history within the Roman Catholic Church.
