Today's Luther Fact:
April, 1521 – Diet of Worms. Confronted with his writings, Luther asks for more time. He is given one day to recant. When he appears the next day, he gives his famous “Here I stand” speech. The emperor follows through with his pledge to provide Luther with safe transport out of Worms. Along the way, Luther preaches in various churches. The priests and noblemen who provide Luther access to pulpits take huge risk in being outlawed with alongside him.
