Augsburg Diet

(1518). Convened to obtain Ger. subsidy for the pope at war with Turks. M. Luther's enemies used the opportunity to prejudice princes and Maximilian* I against the Reformer, even forging theses on the papal ban and claiming they were by Luther. After the Diet, Cajetan* gave Luther a hearing (see Luther, Martin, 10). See also Frederick III (1463–1525); Nürnberg, Diets of.
