Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri, has made several classes available for free online through their Worldwide Classroom.

Although Ancient and Medieval Church History is a college-level course, I believe it would be appropriate for a high school student studying this topic.

In order to listen to these free classes, you’ll need to register with Worldwide Classroom. After registering, you’ll be able to listen to all of these sessions on Mp3, as well as download written transcripts and study guides for each lecture.

Martin Luther

Luther before the Diet of Worms

Martin Luther, a monk, came to realize that salvation was through grace alone by faith alone, and not by works. He posted his 95 theses on the Wittenburg Door and was tried as a heretic at the Diet of Worms, where he refused to recant his writings. It was there he said those famous words, “I cannot–I WILL NOT recant….Here I stand: I can do no other.”

Here is a clip of the Diet of Worms scene from the movie Luther.
