Son of Iniquity – Episode 3: Luther the Monk

Listen to Episode Duration: 9.11

Luther’s solution to his over-bearing thoughtfulness about the world was to become a monk. What a radical!

His time in the monastery would help shape many things that he would stand for and many things that he would stand against.

In this episode, we go through Luther’s transition and travel with him to Rome, where he will learn how monking is really done and climb some very special stairs. Say your pater nosters folks, it’s about to get real.
