Martin Luther (Stacy Keach) is a German monk who subjects himself to daily humiliations out of love for Jesus Christ. Yet he sees in the church around him a troubling attachment to the material world. After witnessing John Tetzel (Hugh Griffith) selling indulgences, he is convinced that the Vatican is exploiting the poor through a degraded theology in which salvation can be bought with gold. In response, he composes new doctrines of faith and initiates the Protestant Reformation.
