Carl Trueman on the Reformation: Part Ten

Carl Trueman on the Reformation, Part Nine ]

In lecture ten, Dr. Trueman discusses Luther’s growing popularity and its implications for the Roman Church’s hierarchy as well as state rulers and even the new emperor himself, Charles V. Erasmus is also introduced, with interesting facts about his meeting with Frederick and his influence on the reformers.

In this same time period, Luther proceeds to burn the Papal Bull and Canon Law, doing what no one else had ever done—live to tell about it. This leads to the Diet of Worms where Dr. Trueman expresses his opinion on why Luther appeared to temporarily choke. There is much of interest to be gleaned from this lecture.
