Luther was summoned to appear before the Diet at Worms in 1521, and there, on the 13th April, before the Emperor, the Archduke Ferdinand, six electors, twenty-four dukes, seven margraves, thirty bishops and many princes, counts, lords, and ambassadors, defended himself in a speech of two hours' length, closing with the following memorable words: "Let me then be refuted and convinced by the testimony of the Scriptures or by the clearest argument; otherwise I cannot and will not recant; for it is neither safe nor expedient to act against conscience. Here I take my stand; I can do no otherwise. So help me God% Amen." [P. 3.]
