Often, the work we start has unintended consequences. Martin Luther’s early reforming work is an extreme case of of this. Luther submits 95 points of debate for an academic discussion among the church regarding one specific practice, which later leads him to further developing his theology and even questioning the authority of the Pope. Listen in to how the controversy developed.
Listeners will notice the addition of a line from “A Mighty Fortress.” We though it appropriate to introduce each episode with a bit from one of Luther’s hymns.
Also, listen for the bit about Luther and the fish pond.
