An educational video on the historic debate between Martin Luther and John Eck about the authority of the Pope as the head of the Church. In 1521 Martin Luther was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church by Pope Leo X and this event led to The Protestant Reformation.

Today, The Roman Catholic Church acknowledges both Jesus Christ and the Pope as the visible representative of Jesus Christ in the world.
