500 Years Since the Diet of Worms - "Here I Stand"


It was in 1521 when Dr. Martin Luther was called to the Imperial Diet of Worms to revoke his beliefs. But he stood firm to his faith, and confessed to the Pope and Emperor: “For to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. Here I Stand. God help me.” For the first time in modern European history, a movement of rebellion toward a powerful authority sparked a widespread change.

In many ways, this event paved the way for modern society’s focus on civil rights, personal autonomy, and intellectual and religious freedom. 500 years later, a series of talks and concerts will introduce visitors to the background, times, and significance of this event, focusing on the role of conscience from Luther to the Digital Age.
