Empires: Martin Luther

English  |  History & Documentary
Empires: Martin Luther part of the PBS series Great Religions Take a fascinating look back into the history surrounding popular religions and you will find much written about Martin Luther and Frederick the Wise. Frederick was thought to be all powerful in terms of religious leaders of his era and he perceived Martin Luther as being a useful kind of weapon to be used against the papacy as well as the church. Luther was revered for his teachings and strong held beliefs. Among Martin Luther’s serious flaws were the fact he was a violent man who tended to inflame nobles, commoners, and kings with his diatribes against Old Faith ideals and some New Faith members as well as Jews. It became well established however that once he captured their ear he could find supporters who only pleaded to him that he tone down his rhetoric and his rage. Luther studied the bible extensively and learned much then passed on what he had learned to all that would listen. Much has been written about Martin Luther and some inaccuracies are always to be expected. This well narrated program shows him as a man of faith but somewhat flawed in character.
