At a meeting of the Diet of Nuremberg, the papal nuncio Chieregati demands obedience to the Edict of Worms against Martin Luther, and promises reform of the Church from Pope Adrian VI. However, the German princes are not content with this promise, demanding that a general council of the Church should be summoned to assemble in Germany.
