Quick trip to Worms

We live about 40mn away from Worms.
It is a very cute town, and I love going there to take pictures.
It is a beautiful town full of history and tones of
architecture detail like I really enjoy on building!
Here is a few info on Luther
Luther and the Reformation
In 1517 the Augustinian monk Martin Luther mooted the nuisances of the Church,
when he posted his 95 theses to the doors of All Saints’ church in Wittenberg.
In the years following he published several writings which were perceived as heretical.
It these writings, he rejected the Church dogmas and practices that diverged from the Gospels.
At that he was excommunicated by Rome.Emperor Charles V summoned Luther in 1521 to the Diet of Worms to recant his theses.
He refused to do so, claiming nobody could not be confuted on the basis of the Bible.
Thereupon the Emperor outlawed him, which proved futile.
Frederick, the Elector of Saxony and Luther’s sovereign, shielded him.
A combination of theologic and Reformist claims and political interests eventually resulted in the Reformation. Luther’s ideas spread like wildfire. His conscientious decision had a tremendous and worldwide impact on both the religion and politics.
