Martin Luther burns the Pope’s Papal Bull of Excommunication at 9.00 a.m., 10th December, 1520 at Wittenberg.
“The burning of the Pope’s Bull of Excommunication was the boldest and most eventful act of Luther. Viewed in itself, it might indeed have been only an act of fanaticism and folly, and proved a brutal thunderbolt. But it was preceded and followed by heroic acts of faith in pulling down an old church, and building up a new one. It defied the greatest power on earth, before which emperors, kings, and princes, and all the nations of Europe bowed in reverence and awe. It was the fiery signal of absolute and final separation from Rome, and destroyed the effect of future papal bulls upon one-half of Western Christendom. It emancipated Luther and the entire Protestant world from that authority, which . . . had become a fearful and intolerable tyranny over the intellect and conscience of men.”
[Philip Schaff D.D., “History of the Reformation” from his “History of the Christian Church” 1888 edition.]
