In the late afternoon of April 18, 1521, in the city of Worms, Germany, Martin Luther, 37 year-old Catholic monk appeared before Charles the Fifth, the Holy Roman Emperor at the imperial assembly. Luther was called to answer certain charges and to make public confession to the ‘errors’ found within the multitude of books he had written. The speech he delivered that day, Here I Stand, marked the beginning of the Reformation, a critical turning point in Christian history that decisively altered the spiritual map of the world.

In this recording of one of the most consequential speeches ever given, Max McClean introduces the events leading to the Diet of Worms; Martin Luther’s prayer the night before he delivered his speech; Luther’s stirring defense; Eck’s rebuttal; and, Luther’s final heartfelt response.

Loved it. If you are excited to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the 95 theses then the reading of Luther's prayer before his answer at the diet of Worms and the answer he gave is perfect for you. Includes brief history of events surrounding them and music from A Mighty Fortress .
