Sola fide - Indulgence Controversy – Pope Leo X had called for the St. Peters Indulgence (to help rebuild the New St. Peters) Primarily in Germany. Albert of Hohenzollern, named Arch Bishop of Trier, he was a Pluralist (held several other diases) Albert would get half of the money raised by the St. Peters Indulgence. Agents of the Fugger banking family would accompany the Indulgence Preachers. Tetzel was one of these preachers. Arrived in Fitensburg in 1517 trying to push the St. Peters Indulgence This offended Luther in 3 ways: You can buy salvation. Salvation was an individual arrangement between the Soul and God. St. Peters Indulgence was more of a corporate salvation. Peasants were being defrauded October 31 of 1517, Luther put together a list of 95 points (theses) to be debated among the theologians of his college. They were in Latin, and he just wanted them to be debated. Translated from Latin to German, and printed thousands of copies. When this first reached Rome, Leo X dismissed it as a drunken monks quarrel.
