Storyboard Text

  • This is Martin Luther before he became a monk. He was outside and said to God if I get hit by the lightning than I will become a monk for you. He was praying and kneeling. He then got struck by lightning and became a monk as he promised God.
  • Martin Luther didn't like how the church was trying to give out indulgences. The church had said that if the people had paid them money they can get God to forgive them for all of their sins. They would then be able to get a free ride up to heaven when dead. So when Luther found out he was upset so he made the 95 Theses, they were talking about the indulegences.
  • 95 Theses
  • Martin Luther is now in trouble. Once he told everyone that the indulgences were fake the church officials, Pope, and everyone who was in on it got mad at him because now they don't get anymore money. So Prince Fredrick's "assistant" had brought Luther back and made him translate the bible from Latin to Germany. So he is in this room stuck trying to translate the bible which would take a very long time.
  • This is King Henry. He was angry because the church wouldn't approve of him getting a divorce against his first wife. Her name was Catherine of Aragon. So then he said if the church won't let him get divorced then he would do it himself.
  • This is King Henry and his 6th wife. His last wife was Catherine Parr. Henry dies while married to Catherine Parr. He loved her and didn't want to behead, kill her or do anything to harm her. Here they are married and happy.
  • This is John Calvin. He's the one with the gray beard. He had started his own religion called Calvinism. John Calvin believed in almost the same thing as Luther except he thought one main thing differently. He thought that the only way for you to get into heaven is because God had already chose who was going up to heaven before they were even born. They were also known as Calvinists.
