Storyboard Text

  • 1517-Martin Nails the 95 Theses to the Church Door
  • 1520-21: Martin Burns the Papal Bull
  • 1521-Diet of Worms
  • You will be given a bit of time to decide if you want to recant.
  • Did you write this?
  • Yes.
  • Martin Luther writes the 95 These, or a statement of ideas, and nails them to the Church door. In the 95 Theses, Martin explains that the Indulgence system is wrong, and much more that the Church is doing wrong.
  • 1522-Martin Translates the Bible into German
  • The Papal Bull was a written letter from Pope Leo X, sent to Martin Luther that told him if he did not recant his sayings opposing church's views, he would be excommunicated. This picture show Martin burning the Papal Bull, which is a big deal, because nobody burns something from the Pope.
  • 1534-Act of Supremacy
  • I'm the boss, the boss, the boss...
  • Martin Luther appears at the Diet of Worms before Charles V, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Martin, refusing to recant, therefore is excommunicated from the Catholic Church by Pope Leo X. Frederick III, Elector of Saxony ensures that Luther is taken to the Wartburg Castle for his own safety.
  • 1536-40: Ban of Monasteries
  • While Martin Luther is in the Wartburg Castle, he decides to translate the Greek & Hebrew Bible into a German Bible. Why? So the people could actually read the Bible.
  • Henry VIII becomes supreme head of the Church in England, which separates from the Roman Catholic Church.
  • During a four-year time period, King Henry VIII bans all of the Monasteries. Henry VIII had fallen out with the Pope over his divorce with Catherine of Aragon, so Henry felt let down by the Pope. Monks and Nuns recognised the Pope as the head of the Church in England.
  • I want all of these gone.
