He wanted to replace Christianity with a new Aryan faith. Furthermore, the Churches were a potential obstacles to his reordering of the German people into committed followers of his totalitarian regime. His initial main concern was to gain control and support from the Churches hierarchies and then gradually to reduce their influence. Both organizations (Christianity and Nazism) nor opposed no
This Theses was addressed to Pope Leo X, who was building St Peter’s. Luther was angered about this and made his opinion in the Theses that if the pope could open the doors of purgatory for people who paid, why could he not open them for all people.Luther published other scriptures against the sale of indulgences, his letter to Albrecht of Mainz and the explanation of the 95 Theses. His initial writings were catalysts in the course of the reformation, it was Luther’s anger and bravery that began the Reformation. Luther continued to publish impactful works, in 1520 he released To the Christian Nobility of the German Nation, where Luther outlined the doctrine of the Priesthood of all believers and denied the authority of the Pope to interpret, or confirm interpretation of the Bible, On the Babylonian Captivity of the Church, and On the Freedom of a Christian. These publications all became influential as they were able to spread around Germany through the German printing press and were allowing people to form their own opinions of the church rather than being told by the church what to believe.
His marriage, on June 13, 1525, to Katharina von Bora, a former nun, began the tradition of clerical marriage within several Christian traditions. Martin Luther was one of the most influential and compelling figures of Church history. Some of the most fundamental tenets of the Catholic Church were called into question by Luther, and lead to the greatest religious revolt in Church history, now known as the Protestant Reformation.

How important was Hitler to helping the Nazi Party come to power in 1933? In this essay I will be answering the question ‘How important was Hitler to helping the Nazi Party come to power in 1933?’. To do this I will split it into 4 paragraphs: How Hitler was important in the rise of the Nazi Party, How the other Nazi leaders were important, How the Depression helped the Nazis and How the weakness of the Political System helped the Nazi’s. Before the 1920’s, the Nazi Party were a new extreme right wing political party called the German Workers Party. The party was created in 1919 by a railway mechanic called Anton Drexler.
Since most Germans were Christian Hitler took control of the churches to turn the religion against the Jews and to promote Nazism, On March 23, 1933 Hitler gave a speech to the Reichstag, Hitler described Christianity as the foundation for German values. For example, in the novel night written by Wiesel. Elie talks about how he heard a man call for god to which Elie responded: “Behind me, I heard the same man asking: “for god’s sake, where is god?” and from within me “I heard a voice answer: “where he is? This is where – hanging here from these gallows…” that night, the soup tasted of corpses.” (Wiesel 65). Another example of this is when it is new years in the concentration camp, in this Elie is losing his faith in god because he is the creator, he is questioning why?
Did the Nazis succeed in controlling the churches? Progressively from 1935 onwards Hitler felt much more secure in the Nazis overall control of Germany. From this extra sense of security, Hitler’s following actions were bolder and brasher. Hitler’s first move was setting up a new Department for Church Affairs, which was designed to control the churches. The Gestapo also proceeded in arresting 700 Protestant ministers who were supposedly opposed to the Nazis.
The central part of the book deals with the conflict with Rome, and particularly what it was referred as to “The Diet of Worms”. The latter portion of the book explores the contributions Luther made to the building of the new Protestant traditions. The purpose of the book is to portrait an intimate view of who Luther was and his spiritual struggles leading him into the reformation period. Roland H. Bainton (1894–1984) was born in England and came to the United States in 1902. Dr. Bainton was a specialist in Reformation history and for many years he was Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale University.
Within days of taking power Hitler banned all other political parties. The normal democratic right to oppose or protest against government was not going to be allowed. The Gestapo made it their business to find out about Nazi opponents. They tapped phones, opened letters and spied on suspects. A network of Nazi informers passed on information to them.
