With an inimitable flugelhorn, we present to you Martin Luther’s “The Babylonian Captivity of the Church,” part 13. 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 we read his section on the sacrament of confirmation and begin his section on the sacrament of matrimony.
