With an acrobatic ferret, we present to you Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 10 in this, our episode that answers the question to life, the universe, and everything. 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.
Next week, Luther looks at the 'sacrament of penance'! Sounds ominous!
