The vice president of Germany’s Protestants, Petra Bosse-Huber, told DW that Pope Francis and Martin Luther had the same aims: liberation, social justice and a religious message that people would understand but that would also transform their lives.
German leaders gathered in Wittenberg to mark 500 years since Martin Luther began the Protestant Reformation. Alongside ceremonies in the eastern city, events were held across Germany.
Protestantism is mostly a group of niche movements in predominantly Catholic Latin America. The 500th anniversary of the Reformation is an opportunity for Christianity's various sects to find new recognition.
Martin Luther not only reformed the Church 500 years ago, but also discovered the power of music as a songwriter and composer. His chorales gave churchgoers a voice and helped spread the ideas of the Reformation.
