The Heidelberg Disputation was held at the lecture hall of the Augustinian order on April 26, 1518. It was here that Martin Luther, as a delegate for his order, began to have occasion to articulate his views. In the defense of his theses, which culminated in a contrast between divine love and human love, Luther defended the doctrine of human depravity and the bondage of the will. Martin Bucer, the reformer of Strasbourg, heard Luther here and became an avid follower. This disputation also led to Johann Eck's challenging Martin Luther to the Leipzig Debate.
The Heidelberg 28 theses based the disputation, and represented a significant evolution from the 95 theses of the previous year from a simple dispute about the theology behind the indulgences to a fuller, Augustinian, theology of sovereign grace.
^Kittelson 1986, p. 112: "Martin Bucer, who later took up what he understood to be Luther's cause, observed in a letter to his friends, 'Luther responds with magnificent grace and listens with insurmountable patience. He presents an argument with the insight of the apostle Paul.'"
