In 1521, Emperor Charles V convened the imperial Diet of Worms, a general assembly of all the estates in the Holy Roman Empire. Luther was called to the assembly to answer questions about his views and works. Luther would not renounce his works or his views, but did apologize for the harsh tone of his writings in which he attacked individuals. At the conclusion of the assembly, the Edict of Worms was passed on May 25, 1521 banning Luther’s writings and calling for his arrest.

This is Erasmus’ account of and thoughts on the proceedings at Worms published that same year.
