Today: Luther and the German Princes

In 1521 Martin Luther, an Augustinian friar teaching biblical theology at a recently founded university on the frontier of the Holy Roman Empire, was ex-communicated by Pope Leo X, and declared an outlaw by Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms.

How was it that he could defy the ultimate spiritual and secular authorities of his age and die peacefully in 1547?

Nelson H. Minnich, Ph.D., (Catholic University of America) lectures on this topic in the Donahue Auditorium of Dolan Science Center, on Thursday, November 2, at 7:30 p.m.
