About

Martin Luther Town Scene Depicting the Burning the Bill of Excommunication by Pope Leo X in 1520, oil on canvas, 19th century, original frame A wonderful, naive painting of Martin Luther (1483 - 1546), Protestant reformer and leading figure in the Reformation. Shown here burning Pope Leo X's bill of excommunication on the 10th of December 1520. The scrolling blue skies and architectural background should be noted. This painting shows one of the most important events in history. Martin Luther, standing near the Elster Gate, in Wittenberg, publicly burned not only the Pope's order (a Papal Bill entitled Exsurge Domine) but also other Church documents with which he disagreed, including the Decretals of Clement VI, the Summa Angelica and the Chrysposus of Dr. Eck.
