Benedict XVI and Martin Luther
On the Reformation21 blog, Ligon Duncan asked the question: "Is the Pope set to rehabilitate Martin Luther?" and then linked to this news story: "That Martin Luther? He wasn't so bad, says Pope." It would seem that Pope Benedict XVI is finally going to say what many Protestant scholars (and, even a few RC ones) have been saying all along: Luther never intended to start his own church, but merely to reform the existing establishment.
