Angered by Luther's unflinching criticism of Roman Catholici sm, the Holy Roman Emperor called for him 'to be apprehended and punished as a notorious heretic.' Fearing for his life, Luther's followers spirited him away to Wartburg Castle, where he fought inner demons, translated the Bible, and sought to hold an increasingly fractious movement together.
Luther's Fortress: Martin Luther and His Reformation Under Siege by author James Reston, Jr., is the story of this lesser known time in the reformer's life. Rather than squelching the fire, this episode strengthened Luther's foundation and resolve.
