Storyboard Text

  • Luther was kidnapped by Fred the Wise and kept in Wartburg castle from 1521-22. It was to keep him safe from the papacy.
  • Looks like I'll have to translate the New Testament into German to pass the time...
  • I think I'll change my name to Junker George to be inconspicuous.
  • In Dec 1521, the Zwickau Phrophets arrived in Wittenberg presenting extremist ideas.  For example saing people should be baptised as adults, like Jesus was.
  • Luther's ideas are too cautious, we need to radicalise his philosophy.
  • On Christmas day , 1521, the services were delivered in German.
  • Gott, unser Retter
  • Carlstadt and Zwilling (supporters of Luther but radicalised his ideas) led to iconoclasm. They set fire to Augustinian Friary and burnt: images, banners, crucifixes and candles.
  • We want change, Luther isn't being socially or politically active enough.
  • March 1522 - Luther returns to Wittenberg to stop the extremism and bloodshed. The prophets were later expelled.
  • Guys you've got to be kidding me! Stop destroying things. I'm going to give a sermon on how you all are wrong. and I'm so charasmatic everyone will support me.
  • Luther's sermon covered a few concession (known as Wittenberg tumults) which were important because: 1- in stopping Carstadt/ prophets he showed his conservative approach to change/activism/extremism.
  • 2- I made a few concessions like taking Eucharist's of both kind and it opened my eyes to how my absence had created a vacuum e,g, for radical views.
  • EXIT
