The food plan ( meeting) of Worms called collectively the Bishops of Germany to research the challenges to the Pope and the present Catholic positions by Martin Luther. The edict of Worms changed into the belief of the religious meeting supported with the aid of the secular energy of the Holy Roman Empire. Martin Luther had called for the reformation of the Catholic Church. His well-known ninety-five theses were unique points that Luther felt needed to be changed within the Catholic Church. The Pope felt that the ninety-five theses were a right away attack on his personal electricity and called for the thesis to be rejected. The Catholic counter-reformation might later comply with some of the "tips" of Martin Luther. The weight loss plan of Worms obeying the desires of the Pope referred to as for the rejection of all ninety-five theses and for Martin Luther to recant and disavow his call for reformation. when Martin Luther refused to recant the assembly excommunicated Martin Luther from the Catholic Church. Charles V as the secular ruler of the Holy Roman Empire turned into called on to guide and enforce the rulings of the religious assembly. The edict of Worms became Charles V declaration as to the excommunication of Martin Luther and a proclamation forbidding everybody to aid or follow the teachings of Luther. As Charles V wished the aid of the Pope to retain his crown as Emperor, Charles V had little choice but to guide the weight loss plan of Worms and problem his Edict of Worms. Many nobles in Germany refused to obey the Edict and furnished Martin Luther with sanctuary and aid. The printing presses posted more than one copies of Martin Luther's teachings to the quantity that the Catholic church was no longer able to repress the protestant motion. The result of the Edict became the cut-up of Christianity into rival camps the Protestants and the Catholic in western Europe.
