SESSION ONE:

  • Comprehensive Reformation Website:
    A great overall website on the Reformation.
  • Luther's Formative Years:
    A fascinating account of Luther's formative years, up through his completion of elementary school.
  • The Plague:
    This article describes the cause, transmission and symptoms of the plague that killed two of Luther's colleagues at Erfurt.
  • Observant Augustinians:
    The monastic movement called the Order of Saint Augustine traced its founding to Saint Augustine (d. 430). Before Luther's time an observant movement started among the Augustinians to focus on increased spirituality.
  • Welcome to a Day in the Life of a Monk:
    Experience a day in the life of a monk, from his early rising, to his praying, labor, and the overall austerity that marks a man's monastic decision.

SESSION TWO:

  • The Flagellants:
    This fanatical and heretical sect took self-flagellation to an extreme 200 years before Luther's time; their activities help explain the purposes of self-flagellation among monks like Luther.
  • Of the Awful Judgment: For Awakening Fear in Oneself:
    Centuries before Luther, St. Anselm wrote about sin and righteousness. His meditations on the depth of our sinfulness help explain why Luther's monastic period made his feelings of guilt and unworthiness increase.
  • Johann von Staupitz:
    This is a biographical sketch of Luther's Augustinian supervisor.
  • Rome and Romans -- Martin Luther:
