Synopsis: Biography of Martin Luther, the 16th-century priest who led the Christian Reformation and opened up new possibilities in exploration of faith. The film begins with his vow to become a monk, and continues through his struggles to reconcile his desire for sanctification with his increasing abhorrence of the corruption and hypocrisy pervading the Church's hierarchy. He is ultimately charged with heresy and must confront the ruling cardinals and princes, urging them to make the Scriptures available to the common believer and lead the Church toward faith through justice and righteousness.

and into the gates of Heaven.

You are back from Rome

almost two weeks.

Two weeks, and scarcely alert,

even in the confessional.

As your father in Christ,

I order you to speak.

Rome is a circus...

a running sewer.

You can buy anything...

sex, salvation.

They have brothels

just for clerics.

As they probably do

in Leipzig.

One church had the coins

for which Judas sold our Lord.

100 years off Purgatory

for kissing each one.

And you think Rome unique

in such relics?

There are even rumors

about the Holy Father himself,

that he has a lust for power!

Let's go outside.

What's wrong with here?

Well, this floor... the color.

I like color, but you give

your brothers a hard choice...

they either learn

to scrub like you,

or find a way to make your patch

a little less sparkling.


like milking a cow.

The ancients

reverenced their bees.

They valued them

more than slaves.

Have you ever read

the New Testament, Martin?

No, Father.

Not many have,

but in Wittenberg you will.


A doctorate in theology.

You're sending me away

to study?

I'm sending you to the source...

the Scriptures.

Christ Himself.

Here I'm losing my faith,

feeling like a fool even to pray,

and you're sending me away?

You'll preach.

I'd be a fraud as a preacher!

We preach best

what we need to learn most.

Do not send me away from you.

God gave you gifts for a purpose.

In Wittenberg, you will be

able to change minds, open eyes.

That's what you want,

isn't it?

To change things?

Welcome to Wittenberg,

Father Martin.

I am Ulrick Wender.

I'll be helping you in the parish.

Gunter and I have caught some fish

for your first meal among us.

Wender. That's a Dutch name.

I was born in Utrecht.

We have to stop for Hanna.

She's a little... well, she keeps
