Tom Marler HIST 101 Essay #3 05/10/2009 The Catholic Church’s justification on religious beliefs and the Pope’s misuse of power were  some of the corruption Martin Luther saw in the church.  Clergy members were commissioned  by the Pope to preach the clever con of indulgences to their followers to fund their aristocratic  lifestyle. This was the basis for Martin Luther to write his ninety-five theses about the corruption  of the Catholic Church Martin Luther’s main argument was the fact that the church was gaining wealth though the  selling of indulgences.  Catholic Leaders were offering indulgences for viewing religious relics  and sending clergy members to explain the benefits of making “charitable donations”.  Their  justification of the indulgences came from the religious crusades when Pope Urban II relieved  the crusaders of their sins because they fought the religious war to get the holy land back.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
