HISTORY of Christian Theology

(A.D. 1521) Luther testified before the emperor Charles V (the Civil authority who could execute physical penalties for heresy) at the Diet of Worms in April and refused to retract any of his writings. He was condemned as a heretic in May. On his way home his supporter arranged for him to be kidnapped for his protection. He spent the rest of the year hiding in the castle at Wartburg while the church in Wittenberg began to implement reforms in the midst of great tumult. The Edict of Worms was the imperial judgment rendered against Luther at the Diet of Worms condemning him to death as a heretic. Thereafter, it was a criminal act to assist Luther.
