Martin Luther's most effective strike against the Church may have been his decision to marry. Shows how Luther's radical choice and the Protestant movements of the 16th and 17th centuries transformed Western attitudes toward sex, love, marriage, gender roles, and family life. Discusses the contributions of several historical figures, including Thomas Cranmer's versions of the "Book of Common Prayer," the misogynist rhetoric of John Knox, Richard Baxter's unexpected marriage and its implications, and the straitlaced culture promoted by Queen Victoria. The progression away from Victorian strictures and the inclusion of women and gays in the clergy are also studied. NOTE: Contains brief nudity. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
