The Catholic Church did not take well to Luther's complaints. So, naturally, Luther took to German Princes and asked for aid in overthrowing the papacy and founding a reformed German Church. However, after an unsuccessful meeting with the Imperial Diet, who tried to change Luther's mind, Luther was banished and his work was burned. This relates to the responses to Luther and the Protestant Reformation, as the event displays how the Church responded to Luther and the progression of the Protestant Reformation. The Church, in response, burned Luther's work and banished him.
