I have to write an essay for history and i cant find why he was a conservative. I know he was a revolutionary because the revolution, the Diet of Worms, and the 95 Thesis…

weight loss cardiff answers:

You need to go to a library and read, a quick read, a book entitled HERE I STAND by Roland Bainton. That is the best biography on Luther for the average student.

He was conservative because he wanted to turn the Christian faith back to its original roots and liberal because he bucked Catholic authority by sticking to his guns on the 95 Theses. There is a lot more to it than that, those are the basics, and Bainton will tell you the rest.

Mark asks…

Why was the condemnation of Martin Luther in 1521 at Worms not enforced by the German nobility?

Please help!!! Major AP Euro test tomorrow!!! I know that his condemnation was not enforced, but I don’t know why. So,
Why was the condemnation of Luther in 1521 at the Diet of Worms not enforced by the German nobility? What was the result?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Because some of the German princes – especially Frederick, Elector of Saxony – were “Protestants” who opposed the Edict of Worms.

Frederick “kidnapped” Martin Luther after Luther was released by the Diet of Worms and protected him for the next several years. By this time, a number of German princes and a significant number of the German people had aligned themselves with Luther, and the Holy Roman Emperor was no longer in a strong political position to neutralize Luther.

Thomas asks…

What happend after Martin Luther posted the 95 Thesis on the Church doors?

Did he get submitted to the imperial diet of worms?
or was that before he posted them?
When did he interpertate the bible thing?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I am trying to figure this out too. I don’t really know what happened. But I know the Pope Leo X was trying to get Martin Luther to shut up basically. He didn’t want Martin to have any more influence. I know it caused a lot of violence. He survived the trip to Worms, and became famous. His idea’s “spread like wildfire” He eventually moved to Germany, married an ex-nun, had a large family, and then died in 1543 from a hard attack. I got this all from a website. Hope that helped/

Linda asks…

What happened at the Diet of Worms in 1521?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Diet of Worms was the most famous of the imperial diets held at Worms, Germany. It was opened in Jan., 1521, by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. After disposing of other business, notably the question of the Reichsregiment, the diet took up the question of the recalcitrant behavior of Martin Luther. Charles was induced to summon Luther, who arrived at Worms under a safe-conduct on Apr. 16. At the diet Luther was asked if he would retract his teachings condemned by the pope. After a day’s meditation he refused. For a week various theologians argued with him, but he would not retire from his ground. According to tradition Luther ended his defense on Apr. 18 with the words, “Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise. God help me. Amen.” Finally, on Apr. 26, the emperor, seeing that the dispute was fruitless, ordered Luther to leave the city. He was formally declared an outlaw in the Edict of Worms (May 25); the lines of the Reformation were thereby hardened.

Lisa asks…

what was martin luther (not king jr.) accused of at the diet of worms?

i know he was accused of being a heretic, but my teacher said he was also accused of other things.. but i cant find anything else.

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Diet of Worms resulted in the Edict of Worms. This Edict, issued by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, condemned Martin Luther as a heretic and it authorizes the censoring of Luther’s work, making Luther’s writings illegal to read or have, as well as, the arrest of Martin Luther. Due to a number of circumstances, it was not really enforced.

Betty asks…

besides giving the speech ath the diet of worms, what else did martin luther do during the reformation period?

weight loss cardiff answers:

He translated the Bible into German, continued to be a professor of Theology at the University of Wittenburg, he wrote a bunch of letters and books, hosted many parties at his house for his friends (They were the talk of the town, or the country I should say! People from all over Europe would come to his house just to have dinner with him and participate in his evening sing-alongs!), got married and fathered six children, wrote a lot of beautiful poetry and hymns including “A Mighty Fortress is Our God” and “Dear Christians, one and all, Rejoice” (My personal favorite!). Basically, he got on the Pope’s nerves a lot, and led many out of the dark into the Light of Christ.

how does Martin Luther’s 95 thesis tie into the Diet of Worms?

is there any connection or relation between the two?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Luther was summoned to the Diet of Worms. He was asked to either renounce or reaffirm his beliefs, many of which were contained in the 95 theses.

Charles asks…

where did Luther hide following the Diet of Worms? What work did he accomplish while there?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Despite the agreement that he could return home safely, it was privately understood that Luther would soon be arrested and punished. To protect him from this fate, Prince Frederick seized him on his way home and hid him in Wartburg Castle. It was during his time in Wartburg that Luther began his German translation of the Bible. The edict was temporarily suspended at the Diet of Speyer in 1526 but then reinstated in 1529.

When Luther eventually reemerged from the Wartburg, the emperor, distracted with other matters, did not press for Luther’s arrest. Ultimately, because of rising public support for Luther among the German people and the protection of certain German princes, the Edict of Worms was never enforced in Germany. However, in the Low Countries (comprising modern-day Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands), the Edict was initially enforced against Luther’s most active supporters. This could be done because these countries were under the direct reign of the Emperor Charles V himself. In December, 1521, Jacob Probst, prior of the Augustinian monastery in Antwerp, was the first Luther-supporter to be prosecuted under the terms of the Worms Edict. In February 1522, Probst was compelled to make public recantation and repudiation of Luther’s teachings. Later that year, additional arrests were made among the Augustinians in Antwerp. Two monks, Johannes van Esschen and Kenet Millur, refused to recant and so on 1 July 1523, they were burned at the stake in Brussels.
