This year it is 500 years ago that the German reformer Martin Luther (1483-1546) was condemned as a heretic at the Reichstag in Worms. A lecture about this on 14 November in the Luther Museum.
Prof. dr. Dr. Sabine Hiebsch, professor by special appointment in the Kooiman-Boendermaker Chair for Luther and the history of (Dutch) Lutheranism at the Theological University of Kampen, tells us in the first part of her lecture how this condemnation came about and what Worms meant for the development of the Lutheran Reformation. Not only in the German countries, but also for Luther’s followers in the Low Countries. The second part of the lecture focuses on the question: What is the significance of Worms in the present day?
