With a vacillating anachronism, Saints Gone Before presents Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 11. 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. Today is our first reading in his section on the sacrament of penance.
