what was the diet of worms all i know is it had 2 do with Martin Luther

weight loss cardiff answers:

The Diet of Worms (German: Reichstag zu Worms) was a general assembly of the estates of the Holy Roman Emperor that took place in Worms, a small town on the Rhine river located in what is now Germany. It was conducted from January 28 to May 25, 1521, with Emperor Charles V presiding. Although other issues were dealt with at the Diet of Worms, it is most memorable for the Edict of Worms (Wormser Edikt), which addressed Martin Luther and the effects of the Protestant Reformation.

The previous year, Pope Leo X had issued the Papal bull Exsurge Domine, outlining forty-one purported errors found in Martin Luther’s 95 theses and other writings related to or written by him. Luther was summoned by the emperor. Prince Frederick III, Elector of Saxony, obtained an agreement that if Luther appeared, he would be promised safe passage to and from the meeting. Such a guarantee was essential after the treatment of Jan Hus, who was tried and executed at the Council of Constance in 1415 despite a safe conduct pass.

Emperor Charles V commenced the imperial Diet of Worms on January 28, 1521. Luther was summoned to renounce or reaffirm his views. When he appeared before the assembly on April 16, Johann Eck, an assistant of the Archbishop of Trier (Richard Greiffenklau zu Vollraths at that time), acted as spokesman for the emperor.

Luther prayed for long hours, consulted with friends and mediators, and presented himself before the Diet the next day. When the counselor put the same questions to Luther, he said: “They are all mine, but as for the second question, they are not all of one sort.” Luther went on to place the writings into three categories:

Works which were well received by even his enemies: those he would not reject. These affected the Protestant Reformation.
Books which attacked the abuses, lies and desolation of the Christian world: those, Luther believed, could not safely be rejected without encouraging abuses to continue.
Attacks on individuals: those he apologized for the harsh tone of these writings but did not reject the substance of what he taught in them; if he could be shown from the Scriptures that he was in error, Luther continued, he would reject them.
According to tradition, Luther is said to have spoken these words: “Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir. Amen.” (“Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me.”)[1] Most scholars now question whether these famous words were actually spoken, however, since only the last four appear in contemporary accounts. Indeed, the full sentence appears in an account by Philip Melanchthon, one of Luther’s most ardent sympathisers, but only the last four words are recorded in a similar first hand account by Johannes Cochlaeus.

Private conferences were held to determine Luther’s fate. Before a decision was reached, Luther departed. During his return to Wittenberg, he disappeared.

The Edict of Worms was a decree issued on May 25, 1521 by Emperor Charles V, declaring Martin Luther an outlaw and a heretic who should be “apprehended and punished.” It banned his literature and declared that any of his writings should be burnt. It also made it a crime for anyone to “receive, defend, sustain, or favor the said Martin Luther.”[2]

The Papal nuncio at the diet, Girolamo Aleandro, drew up and proposed the fierce denunciations of Luther that were embodied in the Edict of Worms, promulgated on May 25. These declared Luther to be an outlaw and banned the reading or possession of his writings. The edict was a divisive move that distressed more moderate men, in particular Desiderius Erasmus.

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 among Luther’s most active supporters there. 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 Hendrik Voes–refused to recant. On July 1, 1523, van Esschen and Voes

Susan asks…

religious: what you does think of the Diet of Worms?

weight loss cardiff answers:

I assume you are referring to the Diet (Official Church Council) held in Worms Germany in 1521. It was a response to Martin Luther and the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. The Council found 41 “errors” in the 95 Thesis and other writings by Luther, and issued an Edict prohibiting his writings and teachings from being spread further. Because of the popularity of Luther among the German people, and the support of Prince Fredrick, the Edict was not enforced in German.

George asks…

can somebody tell me about the diet of worms?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Here is your historical answer:

1521, 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.

Carol asks…

what is Diet of Worms from the 1500’s?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Ap Euro huh? Fun… Well the diet of worms is after Martin Luther posts his 95 theses and is summoned to a debate with John Eck. Basically they refute each other’s ideas. Later he attends the edict of worms which is when they sentence him to banishment and they excomunicate him from the catholic church for contadicting the policies of the church. His ideas become very popular and he starts the lutheran church.

John asks…

Martin Luther’s diet of worms?


plz explain it

thanx everyone!

weight loss cardiff answers:

It does not mean he ate worms ;0 though I thought that myself when I was in lutheran Sunday School in first grade.

Diet of Worms
meeting of the Diet (assembly) of the Holy Roman Empire held at Worms, Germany, in 1521 that was made famous by Martin Luther’s appearance before it to respond to charges of heresy. Because of the confused political and religious situation of the time, Luther was called before the political authorities rather than before the pope or a council of the Roman Catholic church.
Pope Leo X had condemned 41 propositions of Luther’s in June 1520, but he also had given Luther time to recant. Because Luther refused to recant, he was excommunicated on January 3, 1521.

Richard asks…

What are some reasons that Martin Luther was a conservative and some reasons he was a revolutionary?

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/
