On This Day Dec 10, 1520, Martin Luther publicly burned the papal edict. The papacy demanded that he recant or face excommunication. Luther refused and was formally expelled from the church in January 1521. And Protestants could be burned at the stake as heretics too. But the German princes did not care about religion. They were just tired of paying tribute (taxes) to the Holy Roman Emperor. Religion was a convenient way to get their populations to support their break with the Church. Wars of Religion followed for about 200 years. ~M~

Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen."
