Luther and the Reformation - By Rick Steves

In RICK STEVES SPECIAL: LUTHER AND THE REFORMATION, travel expert Rick Steves sheds light on Martin Luther and the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation by visiting key sites (including Erfurt, Wittenberg and Rome). He explores the complicated political world of 16th-century Europe from indulgences to iconoclasts, and from the printing press to the Counter-Reformation. 

It’s a story of power, rebellion and faith that precipitated change in Europe and Christianity forever, and contributed to the birth of our modern world.


Five hundred years ago, Martin Luther kicked off the Protestant Reformation, which contributed to the birth of our modern age.
