Martin Luther posted his Ninety-five Theses on the door of a Roman Catholic Church in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517, which eventually launched the Protestant Reformation. Luther’s novel interpretation of the Word of God and his ideas about church authority and divine nature profoundly changed the European religious landscape. His work created and summarized an age, casting a long shadow still visible today in the millions of Protestants who base their faith on his ideas.
