  • Excommunicated from the Church
  • Martin Luther is nailing the 95 Thesis to the Church door in Wittenberg, Germany. People were crowding round him wondering what he was doing. Martin wanted everyone to know the truth.
  • Martin Luther was called to “The Diet of Worms” in Germany to speak his beliefs to the Pope and Clergy. The Pope was very cross with Martin for nailing his 95 Thesis to the Church door.
