Description

In 1521, Martin Luther informed the Holy Roman Emperor that he could not recant what he had published because, declaring, 'my conscience is captive to the Word of God.' Within less than ten years a host of other earnest seekers had followed Luther's reliance on Scripture, and found refreshing new life in Christ, but also produced unprecedented division in biblical interpretation. This lecture tries to specify the great gain, but also the considerable problems, that arose from the Protestant reliance on the Bible as chief authority for individuals and the church.
