How did Martin Luther, who sought only the quiet of a monastery, become a pivotal figure in Western history? Why did he object so strongly to indulgences? How did Gutenberg's new printing press spread his influence? Who did Luther marry? How did he respond when his young daughter died in his arms?
These and many other topics are addressed in this captivating on-location documentary with the late Dr. Roland Bainton, Dean of Luther scholars, longtime professor at Yale University, master storyteller, and author of the award-winning Luther biography "Here I Stand."
