Reformation Day is quickly approaching. The Protestant Reformation is one of the most pivotal points in world history. If you haven’t had a chance to put together lessons covering Martain Luther and the Reformation, there’s no need to skip learning about this important historical event. Use these free YouTube videos to teach your children about the Reformation. There’s everything from short videos that summarize the key points of the Reformation to full-length documentaries.

Short Videos

Videos in this section range from two to 22 minutes long. Most of them can be enjoyed by the entire family.

Martin Luther -The Animated Movie – Produced by Fishpond Productions

A Fun, Animated History of the Reformation and the Man Who Started It All – Created by National Geographic.

Reformation Rock – Uses music to teach the key points of the Reformation.

The Ballad of Martin Luther – A catchy tune tells the story of Martian Luther and the Reformation.

The Story of Martin Luther – Teaches Martin Luther’s story using Playmobile animation.

Martin Luther and Reformation Day – Short summary of the Reformation created by Drive Thur History.

Martin Luther’s “Here I Stand” – Max McLean narrates the speech that launched the Protestant Reformation. This one may not hold the attention of younger children.



Full-Length Movies and Documentaries

The videos in this section range in length from about 40 minutes to almost two hours. While some of them can be enjoyed by the entire family, others will likely be a bit above most younger children’s understanding and may not hold their attention. I would recommend previewing the videos to determine age-appropriateness.

Martin Luther (Part 1) – Documentary created by PBS.

Martin Luther (Part 2) – The second part of the above PBS documentary.

Rick Steves’ Luther and the Reformation – This documentary was filmed on location in Europe.

Martin Luther – Filmed in 1953 and is the first motion picture portrayal of the Protestant Reformation.

Martin Luther and the 95 Theses – Gordon Cornwell Theological Seminary lecture explaining the 95 Theses in detail. I’d recommend this one for teens only, as it is likely too advanced for younger children.
