Mike and Wade continue their walk through the life of Martin Luther. While there are many important and intriguing characters they have encountered along the journey, the most fascinating might be Lucas Cranach.
In the THIRTY-FOURTH the guys discuss the debate between famous humanist, Desiderius Erasmus, and Martin Luther, who reluctantly battled over the doctrine of the will as it relates to salvation. In 1524 Erasmus wrote his diatribe On the Freedom of the Will. Luther responded about a year later with On the Bondage of the Will.
Mike and Wade introduce Katherine von Bora. The former nun and wife of Martin Luther, has an interesting story in her own right. We hope that you will enjoy the discussion of this remarkable woman who has been dubbed “The Mother of the Reformation”.
Mike and Wade discuss Thomas Müntzer. The radical reformer, who was once a student of Luther, turned to German mysticism that eventually to violence in his attempt to bring about a new age of Christendom.
In the THIRTY-FIRST episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike discuss the so-called Peasants' War, which took place from 1524-1525 (yes, they're still in the mid-1520's).
n the THIRTIETH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike discuss the role of Ulrich Zwingli in the Reformation. Zwingli serves as Luther's counterpart in Switzerland, as well as something of a foil to Luther in the Reformation in a larger sense.
n the TWENTY-NINTH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike continue their march through the life and times of Martin Luther. In this episode they step back to take a bit broader view of the burgeoning Reformation in the 1520s.
In the TWENTY-SIXTH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike discuss the unwieldy nature of the Reformation (even in Luther's "hometown") and Luther's attempt to handle the challenges the arose from the various outgrowths of the Reformation.
In the TWENTY-FIFTH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike keep on with their discussion of the life of Luther. This time they are discussing Luther's time at the Wartburg castle, or should one say Junker Jörg's time at the Wartburg castle.
In the TWENTY-FOURTH episode in our Wingin' It series on the life of Martin Luther, Wade and Mike get back at their series on the life of Martin Luther after a few months hiatus. If you're forgetting where they're at (or just picking this up with this episode), the guys have taken only 23 episodes to get all the way up to.....1521 and the Diet of Worms.
