Storyboard Text

  • Hi, I'm Johann Tetzel!
  • Get in line to buy an indulgence, they sell fast!
  • Stop selling indulgences! They are a lie and a scam!!
  • Well it's a way to make money for the Church, and people want them!!
  • Johann Tetzel is a preist who set up a pulpit on the outskirts of Wittenberg in 1517.
  • I wrote the 95 Theses. You should read them sometime.
  •  There, he offered indulgences to anyone that would donate money to the rebuilding of the Cathedral of St. Peter. He claims indulgences will assure entry to heaven for them, and dead relatives. 
  • Charles V: You've been excommunicated
  • Martin Luther doesn't agree with Johann Tetzel. He doesn't like that Tetzel is promising people an entry to heaven just for money. 
  • The Future!
  • What happens next?
  • Martin Luther created the 95 Theses; arguments against indulgences. Examples are: - indulgences had no basis in the Bible - the pope had no authority to release souls from purgatory - Christians could only be saved through faith.
  • Charles V didn't like that Martin Luther created the 95 Theses, so he excommunicated him.
  • Martin Luther created a lot of change. For instance, the Church lost a lot of power and split up.
