The Power of One:
The Protest of Martin Luther and its Relevance Today

By Stephen O'DohertyMonday 2 Oct 2017Open House with Stephen O'Doherty

Listen: Rev Dr Mark Thompson in conversation with Stephen O’Doherty

When Martin Luther took on the Holy Roman Empire it was not for short term gain.

Convicted of heresy in 1521, he was excommunicated by Pope Leo the tenth.

Four years earlier, in October 1517, Luther published his 95 Theses which, according to legend, were nailed to he door of the Wittenberg Cathedral.

The Theses disputed both the theological and institutional practices of the Roman Catholic Church, laying the foundations for Protestantism.

In this interview Open House explores the relevance of Luther’s original protest to contemporary Christianity with Rev Dr Mark Thompson, Principal of Moore Theological College Sydney.
