Prager University: How the Reformation Shaped the World

Martin Luther was a relatively obscure German monk when he decided to shake things up by nailing 95 complaints he had compiled against the Roman Catholic Church. These complaints revolved around the idea that the church could allow rich believers to buy their way out of punishments for sin by paying the church. His arguments might have fallen on deaf ears within the church, but by posting the arguments publicly and the fact that the printing press had recently been invented, his complaints reached many of the common people of the time and sparked a revolt against the church that literally created war among the many factions that developed.

This short, simple history is explained in a way that makes it both understandable and germane to the many arguments we experience today regarding “God-given rights” and the origins of the claim that the United States is a Christian nation. Take the time to listen…you might just learn something!
