2003 war kein Jubiläumsjahr; offiziell gab es nichts zu feiern, keine Veranstaltungen ad memoriam, weder pompöse Reden noch herausgeputzte Gedenkstätten - trotzdem tauchte er wie aus der Versenkung in diesem Jahr wieder auf: Martin Luther, der Reformator, der Spalter, der Heilige, der Ketzer. [G] 2003 was not a jubilee year: officially, there was nothing to celebrate, no events ad memoriam, no pompous speeches or spruced-up memorials. Nevertheless he re-emerged last year as if from the depths of oblivion: Martin Luther, reformer, schismatic, saint, heretic.

"Hier stehe ich, ich kann nicht anders, Gott helfe mir. Amen" - so das historisch freilich nicht eindeutig belegte Bekenntnis Luthers auf dem Wormser Reichstag 1521, als er den Widerruf seiner Lehren verweigerte, obwohl ihm der Tod des Ketzers auf dem Scheiterhaufen drohte. [G] "Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me. Amen." Though its historical authenticity remains unproven, this is the gist of Luther's famous conclusion to his speech before the Imperial Diet of Worms in 1521 when he refused to recant despite the threat of being burned at the stake as a heretic.

Martin Luther, der Ketzer, der Spalter, der Reformator [G] Martin Luther: Heretic, Schismatic, Reformer
