In s2ep15, Ann Shafer and Tru Ludwig continue talking about game-changer Martin Luther and the effects of his 95 theses against the Catholic Church, which brought about the Protestant Reformation in 1517. In this episode they talk about the biting criticism of politics in the church and the schism with the Lutherans/Protestants that is the subject of prints by Hans Holbein the younger and Lucas Cranach the elder.
