  • The Diet of Worms was held in 1521 in Germany, to discuss the teachings of Martin Luther. Martin Luther had been called to appear before the Diet (assembly) of the Holy Roman Empire and answer charges of heresy. Martin Luther, defied the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V by refusing to recant his writings. “I cannot and will not recant anything, for to go against conscience in neither right nor safe. Here I stand, I can do no other, so help me God. AMEN.”
  • Following the Diet of Worms in 1521, Luther's territorial ruler, Frederick the Wise, had Luther hidden away for safekeeping in the castle at Wartburg. Luther settled down and translated Erasmus's Greek New Testament in only eleven weeks.
