"Rulers of evil" by Tubby Saussy Read by Jörg Glismann of Belguim

THE TERM “PROTESTANT” was coined in 1529 to describe the
large number of princes and delegates of fourteen cities,
largely German, who protested Emperor Charles Habsburg’s
attempt to enforce the Edict of Worms. This edict bound the
Empire’s three hundred princely states and free cities to Roman
Catholicism. The Protestants proposed a compromise formula –
basically a statement of the Lutheran faith – known as the Augsburg
Confession.

For fifteen years the Edict of Worms and the Augsburg Confession
kept Catholic and Protestant rulers in a Mexican standoff.
Then, on December 13, 1545, Paul III called both factions to the
small German-speaking northern Italian cathedral city of Trent.
The promise was to resolve differences peacefully in an ecumenical
council.

The Council of Trent had not been seated four months before
i t decreed that the books and biblical translations of Luther,
LeFevre, Zwingli, Calvin, and other “unapproved persons” were
“altogether forbidden [and] allowed to no one, since little advantage,
but much danger, generally arises from reading them.”
