Form of Absolution.
Tho following Is tho form of absolution
used by Tutzel throughout Saxonyi
"May our Lord Jpsuh Christ hnvo mercy
upon Hice, and alisolvo tlieo by tho merits
of His most holy passion. And I, by His
authority, that of Ills blessed apostles
Peter nnd Paul, and ot tho most holy
pope, granted und committed to mo in
theso parts, do absolve thee. Hist from
nil ecclesiastical censures in whatever
manner they hnvo been Incurred, und
then from nil thy sins, transgressions nnd
excesses, how enormous soever they may
be, even from such as tiro reserved for
tho cognizance of tho holy, see, and ns
fnr as the keys ot tho holy church "ox
Icnd, I remit to you nil punishment which
you doM'rvn in purgatory on their tic
coiuit, and I restm-o you to tho holy sac
raments of tho church, to tho unity of
the faithful, und to that Innocence und
purity which you possessed at baptism;
so Unit, when you die, the gates of pun
ishment shall bo shut, and tho gates of
paradise of delight shall ho opened; nnd
It you shall not die at present, this grace
shall remain in full forco when you are
at tho point of death. In the namo of tho
Father, und of tho Son, and of tho Holy
Theso Indulgences were sold for tho
dead as well as for tho living. "As soon
as your money clinks In tho bottom of
this chest, that Instant will tho soul of
your departed loved ono bo freed from
purgatory nnd fly to heaven," said Tctxci.
Every man paid for his indulgence ac
cording to tho nature of hla crlmo nnd
bis station In life. For an ordinary In
dulgence, a king, iiuoeen or bishop was to
pay IT, ducats (about $.'5.0U. Abbotts,
counts and barons. 10 ducats, and so down
to half a llorln (:'." cents). Thero worn
special taxes for particular sins, Sodomy,
1" ducats; sacrllego nnd perjury, 9 ducats;
murder, 7 or S; witchcraft and polygamy,

rent or child, from 1 to l! ducts, etc.
Toluol sold some of these indulgences to
Luther's parishioners, who demanded ab
solution on theso certificates without
sorrow or repentance. Ho refused to glvo

tho pope in vain. They wcro both
financially Interested In the sale of theso
Heard Across the Continent.
The stroke of Luther's hammer nail
ing up his !3 Thesis or propositions on the
Castlo church door ut Wittenberg, Octo
ber 31, 351", was heard across tho conti
nent. Uo maintained, in brief, theso
threo things: (1) When our Lord and
Muster Jesus Christ says "Repent." Ho
means that tho whole life on earth of
those who believo in Him shall be an un
remitted repentance. (:') Payment ot
money cannot and does not forgive sin.
(3) If the pope hus the power to release
suffering sinners from purgatory, why
does he not do It at once as an act of
A tremendous stir was made all over
Europo by Luther's aet. Correspondence,
conferences, disputations and triul fol
lowed ouo another thick and fast. Juno
l.i, 152l Luther was excommunicated by
tho pope. It spccllicd,forty-otiQ proposi
tions out of Luther's works which It con
demned us heretical, scandalous and of
fensive to pious ears. It forbade all per
sons to read his writings, upon pain ot ex
communication. Such as had any ot bin
'books in their possession were com
manded to burn thorn. He himself, If ho
did not publicly recant his errors and
burn his books within sixty days, was
pronounced an obstinate heretic, excom
municated and delivered over to Satan.
And it enjoined upon all secular princes,
under pain of incurring tho same eon
sure, to seize his person and deliver him
up to be punished, as his crimes deserved;
that is, to bo burned as a heretic.
Luther, as ho stated himself before tnc
Diet at Worms in luit, was willing to re
tract anything and everything ho had
taught or written that ho could be con
vinced was contrary to tho Word of God.
Luther was not married until June 1",
1523 (live years alter tho popo excommuni
cated him from the church). He was no
longer a monk. He. vus no longer ii Ro
man Catholic, Ho had no oaths or obliga
tions longer to tho papal power. Tho re
lation of man and wife is so high and
holy, so beautiful and pure, that Christ
calls tho church Ills bride. Yet it. has
been Insinuated by an enemy that Luther
was a man of lust. His married life was
a blessed example to all in its lovo and
liveliness, in its purity and its beauty.
Married life is tho Ideal life, because it
is llio law of God.
Martin Luther stood on tho Word ot
God; and on it we Lutherans stand today.
Each Man to Interpret It.
Luther declared that In Clnlst every
man Is his own priest and pope; that ev
ery man is to read and interpret tlio
lliblo for himself: that salvation is by
faith alono; that tho church of our Lord
and Suvlous Jesus Christ Is not built upon
l'otor or any other man: that tho Bible
Is tho only Infalllhlo ruin of faith and
practice; that no popo or church has any
thing to do with releasing souls from
purgatory; that prayer Is to bo directed
only to God, In Christ's name; that Christ
meant that tho lulty should participate
