During the early 16th Century idealistic German monk Martin Luther, disgusted by the materialism in the church, begins the dialogue that will lead to the Protestant Reformation.Television miniseries about the German Protestant reformer, played by Joseph Fiennes. Enraged by the corruptions of the Catholic Church in the early sixteenth century, in particular the sale of ‘Indulgences’ as a means of raising money for the Pope, Martin Luther posts his ‘95 Theses’ on the Wittenberg church door. This list of what he sees as necessary changes to be made in the practice of the Catholic faith, ushers in the age of the Reformation and brings Luther’s principles into stark conflict with the ruling orthodoxy of the time. Also featuring performances from Alfred Molina and Peter Ustinov.
