  • The dejected Luther decided to visit the Scala Sancta, or the Holy Stairs, in order to pray. The stairs, located next to the Lateran Palace, were said to be the very steps on which Jesus left the judgment hall of Pilate on the night of His trial. Partway up the steps, however, a passage from Paul’s letter to the Romans suddenly flashed into his mind so powerfully that it was as if a voice had spoken from heaven: “The just shall live by faith” (Romans 1:17).Suddenly relieved of the need to try and earn his salvation, he rose to his feet and left.

  • The Diet of Worms was the most famous of the imperial diets held at Worms, Germany. It was opened in Jan., 1521, by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After disposing of other business, notably the question of the Reichsregiment, the diet took up the question of the recalcitrant behavior of Martin Luther.  During his trial, Martin Luther spoke his famous words.  "Here I stand, I can do no other" (Martin Luther, 1521). 
  • The Bible, a significant stabilizer in any religion, was originally written in Greek.  Then, however, Martin Luther believed that everyone, no matter their religion, should be able to read the bible.  He started by translating the Bible to German, in the Wartburg.  While he was at the Wartburg he had an assumed identity. He grew a beard and tried to disguise himself, and he called himself Junker Jorg,  At the Wartburg, Luther felt alone, isolated.  He also worked hard at the Wartburg.
