Philip Melanchthon, the Other Great Reformer

Because Martin’s work kept him away from home for long periods of time, he and his wife Catherine ‘Katie’ von Bora corresponded with each other often. Hear their letters read as they share about their lives, their children and their flirtatious embellishments to each other as they sacrificed so much for the needs of the Reformation.

This is Martin's own telling of a dangerous time in the Lutheran Reformation when there were threats upon his life. Luther's Ruler, the Elector Prince Frederick the Wise of Saxony had him "kidnapped" by his own knights. He ordered them to keep Martin in their protective custody. They disguised him as a fellow knight and held him in Wartburg Castle.
