Hi, Yvconne —

I have read on the Internet that Martin Luther requested to have a Catholic priest come to give him last rites at his deathbed but that Melanchthon wouldn't let him. I'm unable to confirm this from a trustworthy source.

I think it would be well known if he had returned to the Catholic Church before death.

I certainly have not heard of it.
