If you are referring to the Diet of Worms of 1521, the cause of the meeting was the Protestant Reformation begun by Martin Luther. A diet, in this case, refers to a law-making assembly, for example, the Japanese version of Congress is called the Diet of Japan. Worms is the name of the city in Germany where this diet met. The final result of this meeting was the Edict of Worms, which labeled Luther a heretic.
