Significance Wimpina (also known as Konrad Koch) was one of Martin Lutherís earliest opponents. The Frankfurt theologian drafted 106 theses as a response to Lutherís 95 theses. Johann Tetzel used these at a debate in Frankfort in 1518 concerning Lutherís attack on indulgences. Wimpina attended the Diet of Augsburg in 1530 and worked with Eck and others on the Confutatio, the Catholic response to the Lutheran Augsburg Confession.
