Luther: Martin Luther Visits Rome
00:00:22 - 00:05:22

Martin Luther visits Rome and is shocked at what he finds: immorality, commodification, and insincerity. He climbs the large staircase to the House of Pilate, believing the superstition that it will release his father from pergatory. However, he is not sold on the superstition once he reaches the top. The more of the city of Rome that he sees, the more he dislikes it.
