Why does not the pope, whose wealth is great, build this church of St Peter with his own money rather than with the money of poor believers?
In 1505 Martin luther was travelling home when a storm came over. As he got struck with lightning he prayed to Saint Anne that if she saves him he will become a monk.
You are hereby banished from the church and declared a heretic
Martin kept his word and became a monk. He later travelled to Wittenberg castle and saw the corruption of the Roman Catholic Church.
Luther saw the fake indulgences and tried to stop the the priests from making money with them. Martin did this by printing 95 Theses and hanging it on the door of the church.
STOP this is not right, you shouldn't be fighting
Open the door, We will kill you all
The Church took this offensivly and in 1521 Martin was called to restate his 95 Theses before the Diet of Worms. The Diet of Worms disapproved of Luther and he was excommissioned from the church. He was also declared an outlaw and heretic.
After the Diet of Worms, Luther went into hiding for 3 years while the Church and Emperor Charles V searched for him. In this time Martin wrote many books about the Church with the printing press as well as rewriting the Bible from Latin to German so that the people could read it.
Martin returned to find Germany in a peasants revolt with the Roman Church. This uprising was due to the people fighting for the arguments of Luther and the 95 Theses.
