Scene #1  Terrified Luther makes deal with God  (SV02211)

On July 2, 1505, Luther is returning to university on horseback and encounters a thunderstorm; lightning bolts strike near him!    Terrified of death and divine judgment, he cries out, "Don't let me die! I'll become a monk! I give myself to You! Just spare me!!"    (He came to view this cry for help as a vow he could never break - leaving law school, he enters a closed Augustinian friary in Erfurt on July, 17, 1505)
