Storyboard Text

  • I'm a Monk!
  • In 1505, Martin Luther began law studies. In this same year, Luther vowed to become a monk. This occurred through Martin Luther being in a terrible thunderstorm.
  • Hmm..
  • Martin Luther studied the bible. He found many areas where the bible and the Catholic Church disagreed. His major disagreement was the paying of indulgences which made him think the Church had to much money. Martin Luther also disagreed with the amount of power the pope possessed.
  • You are a Heretic!
  • In 1517, Martin Luther took a list of 95 points call the '95 Theses' where he thought the Church had gone wrong. He nailed the 95 Theses to the door of the 'Wittenberg Castle Church'
  • In 1518, Martin Luther translated the 95 Theses into German as it was originally written in Latin. He made this through a printing press which at this time was one of the first documents to be printed by one. Martin Luther also used the printing press when he made a reader-friendly translation of the bible. Luther quoted: “I have so far read no book or letter in which the German language is properly handled"
  • In 1521, Martin Luther was excommunicated from the Catholic Church and called a Heretic. Luther's words "I neither can nor will recant" tested authority in a way that would transform the course of history.
  • On Martin Luther's way back to Wittenberg, he was Kidnapped by friends of his. They did it to protect him. Martin Luther was taken to the Wartburg Castle until the danger passed.
