Although Martin Luther nailed his work "The Ninety-Five Theses" to a church door, his action sparked a political upheaval as well as a religious one. Examines the rise of the Protestant movement in Europe and its link to revolution, civil war, and modern incarnations of radical and conservative politics. Provides an overview of Luther's study of theology at Wartburg Castle, his confrontations with papal and secular authorities, Thomas Muntzer's bloody appropriation of Protestant ideals, the Levellers' movement under Cromwell, the birth of the British Labor Party, the role of Baptist teachings in the American civil rights movement, and the conservative Protestantism embodied in the presidency of George W. Bush. NOTE: Contains some explicit imagery. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
