The Reformation - Luther versus the Church
This storyboard does not have a description.
I am Martin Luther. The Pope should not be selling indulgences. No one can buy their way into heaven.
As the Pope, I think that Luther is wrong. The church needs money to build big cathedrals and to save the souls of people. People should be able to buy their way into heaven!
I am a European King. I do not know if I support Luther's new ideas or the Pope's old ways. I will have to pick a side so I, and my people, can go to heaven!
We as citizens do not know who to support, but we do agree that the Church needs to be reformed.
Getting into heaven and saving souls was very important to the people and the church. Is the Church acting very loving and Christlike?
While the Church did eventually agree to stop selling indulgences, the damage was done. As a result, Christianity was forever broken into two main groups - Protestants and Catholics
