Abstract
Those of the Wittenberg Circle who had undergone reformation continually submitted their criticisms to the Papacy throughout the sixteenth century. They saw in this institution one of the principal evils of the Catholic Churchn which they saw one of the principal males of the Catholic Church. As a result, they identified the Papacy ad nauseam with the Antichrist and with cardinal sins such as lust, gluttony, greed or pride.  This article thus analyzes diverse aberrant ways of depicting the Papacy in order to evaluate the importance and meaning of this identification as part of the political-religious polemics and of the phenomenon of the propaganda of the convulsed period of the Protestant Reformation. KEY WORDS: Protestant Propaganda, Papacy, Vice, Pamphlets.
