In 1517 Martin Luther, a thirty-four-year old professor at the University of Wittenberg, wished to reform the Catholic Church. He embarked on his mission as a “poor, miserable, contemptible friar” going against the majesty of the Pope. His certainty about the truth of his beliefs laid the foundation for a new church and the Protestant Reformation.

Highlights

  • Martin Luther

    1. Martin Luther

    “Out of love and zeal for truth...the following theses will be publically discussed at Wittenberg.” Thus did Martin Luther set out to debate the abuses of the practice of indulgences, with momentous results.
  • Reformation Women

    2. Reformation Women

    Luther opposed the idea that “all women are alike with the lights out.” He pointed out that so were men and noted that women were companions worthy of respect, and celebrated their intelligence, piety and ethics.
  • Post-Reformation Germany

    “We therefore establish, will, and command that from henceforth no one…shall engage in feuds.” Thus did the Holy Roman Emperor hope to restore peace in a land permanently divided between Catholics and Protestants.
