I will be needing that money for your mother's entry into heaven.
Of course, here take all the money that I have been saving for 20 years.
Another Reason for Reformation
Let me just post this for EVERYONE to see !
In this scene it shows a priest asking a peasant for money, so her mother can get into heaven. This wasn't uncommon at all and it actually happened quite a lot where a peasant would give all the money they had just so a loved one could enter heaven.
Diet of Worms
I charge this man with HERESY !!!
Peasants could pay to become a priest. This was called simony and caused a lot of problem in the church because people with no experience could just become a priest or pope.
Luther Translating the German Bible
In this scene Martin Luther is posting the 95 Theses which are soon going to create havoc and chaos for the Roman Catholic Church.
After posting the 95 Theses the Roman Catholic Church had enough with Luther and summoned him to the Diet of Worms where he was arrested and charged with heresy.
Arrest him immediately !
Luther wanted everyone to be able to read the Bible so they would see how corrupted the Roman Catholic Church was. Luther's version of the bible quickly spread due to the printing press.
Peasants decided to revolt against the Church once they found out that the Church's teachings were unholy and weren't the way of the Lord. They burnt down churches in the name of Martin Luther.
