Starring Timothy West and narrated by Liam Neeson, this is a superb introduction to the obscure German monk who changed the world forever. Offering a new vision of man's relationship with God, he shook the very foundations of an empire that had endured for a thousand years.
Filmed across Europe - from rustic Germany to the opulence of Vatican City - Martin Luther is the dramatic story of the collapse of the medieval world and the birth of the modern age, in 2x55-minute episodes.
Episode 1: Driven to Defiance.
Caught in a thunderstorm and terrified at the thought of death, Luther vows to become a monk. In Rome, however, he finds the Vatican swamped in corruption but finds release in the Bible, discovering that it is not the Church, but his own faith that will guarantee salvation. Launching an attack on the Church, he puts himself on a collision course with the most powerful institution of his day.
Episode 2: The Reluctant Revolutionary.
The Catholic Church uses all its might to silence their troublesome monk. Using the newly invented printing press, Luther's teaching inspires revolution across Europe but as the Reformation develops into a movement for social freedom, Luther is unable to control the forces his ideas helped unleash.
