With an iridescent persimmon, Saints Gone Before is proud to present Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 17. The translation comes by Henry Wace and C. A. Buchheim, First Principles of the Reformation, London: John Murray, 1883. “Babylonian Captivity” is a text in which Luther re-examines the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church in light of his readings of Scripture. Today we're finishing his section on sacraments. Next Monday will be the final reading in this series! That means a different text is only 2 weeks away.

With a carbonated cliche, Saints Gone Before is proud to present Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 16. The translation comes by Henry Wace and C. A. Buchheim, First Principles of the Reformation, London: John Murray, 1883. “Babylonian Captivity” is a text in which Luther re-examines the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church in light of his readings of Scripture. Today’s reading begins his discussion of orders. Our episodes featuring “Babylonian Captivity” coincide with the current volume (season) of our other podcast An Oral History of the Church. On “An Oral History of the Church,” we’re wrapping up our discussion on the Lutheran wing of the Reformation in honor of the 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses. Episodes 1 through 9 are available now. Episode 10 is the final installment, releasing this Friday, Nov. 10th, when we look at the legacy of Martin Luther.
