With an envious hummingbird, we present to you Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 7. The text comes from 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. This episode opens Luther’s discussion of baptism. Our episodes featuring “Babylonian Captivity” coincide with the newest volume (season) of our other podcast An Oral History of the Church. On “An Oral History of the Church,” we’re discussing the Lutheran wing of the Reformation in honor of the 500th anniversary of Luther’s 95 Theses. Episodes 1, 2, 3, and 4 are available now. Episode 5 will become available on Friday, September 1.
