Martin Luther 1521 His Response to Excommunication by Pope Leo X & The Catholic Church Finely Bound


Martin Luther’s writings and actions had a profound impact on Western Christianity. His emphasis on salvation through faith alone challenged the authority of the Catholic Church, leading to the split of Christianity and the rise of Protestantism. Luther’s translation of the Bible into German made scripture more accessible to ordinary people, promoting self-reflection and religious independence. His Ninety-five Theses, written in 1517, highlighted corruption in the Catholic Church, particularly the sale of indulgences, and sparked the Protestant Reformation. Pope Leo X excommunicated Luther in 1521, and Emperor Charles V condemned him as an outlaw at the Diet of Worms. This is his response to his excommunication the only surviving copy from 1521 that has been recently rebound.
