Description by

In 1517 a Catholic priest, Martin Luther, nailed his incendiary document, a scathing protest against the Vatican, to the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany and launched a revolution that would send shockwaves throughout Europe for centuries to come! Outraged by the Church's practice of selling forgiveness for a price and allowing the poor to "purchase" redemption, Luther spoke out in defiance. Refusing to renounce his beliefs at trial, the Catholic Church excommunicated him and sentenced him to death. Protected and hidden by the powerful Barons of Germany, Luther and his teachings survived to be the central force of the Great Reformation.

Nominated for two Academy Awards, this sterling production is noted for its realistic and factual depiction of the events that rocked Christendom. Niall MacGinnis gives an inspired performance as Luther. His three decade career included memorable roles in outstanding productions such as The Curse Of The Demon (1957), Jason And The Argonauts (1963), and The Kremlin Letter (1970).

Product Description:

This is the story of his efforts to reform the Catholic church, his excommunication, and the developments that led to the Protestant Reformation. Academy Award Nominations: 2, including Best (Black-and-White) Cinematography.
