1520: Martin Luther publicly burns the papal edict that demanded he recant or face excommunication over his written attacks on orthodox Catholic beliefs and his denial of the power of Rome to determine what is right and wrong in matters of faith. Luther would be formally expelled from the church in January 1521.
