Transcript of Martin Luther
Another short video:
One of the main issues: the selling of Indulgences
•According to the Medieval Catholic Church an individual had to find a way to pay for, or repent of sins committed
•An indulgence was a way to free a soul from Purgatory, where a soul is punished until sins have been paid for
•The Catholic Church offered a way to avoid this punishment –a payment could be made for an “indulgence” which pay for some or all of the time a soul would have spent in Purgatory
•Indulgences could be purchased for oneself, or for dead loved ones
The Catholic Church began to depend on the sale of indulgences for revenue
•Some people were sold indulgences in the promise that they could “pre-pay” for sins that they had not yet committed
“So soon as coin in coffer rings, the soul from Purgatory springs.
-attributed to Johann Tetzel, a seller of indulgences
