Reformation leaders sign the Augsburg Confession (Confessio Augustana), an explanation of their doctrines and differences from Roman Catholicism. This is one of the most important documents created during the Protestant Reformation.

Written in both German and Latin, it is an answer to Holy Roman Emperor Charles V who has asked his German princes to explain what their religious convictions are and what their disagreement with Roman Catholicism is. Charles V is eager to restore political and religious unity within his empire and use it to better counter the growing threat from the Ottoman Turks.
