Hello! My name is Martin Luther, i am a very influential Reformer. I was born on 1483 in Eisleben, Saxony in Germany. I went to school but then became a Monk in the Roman Catholic Church. I first became a Reformer when I nailed the 95 Theses in 1517 on the doors of the Wittenberg Church, Germany, and will be a Reformer until death.
Guilty and Charged of Heresy!
The Catholic Church was going against the Bible and was well on its way to corruption. The priests were rewording the Bible, and making it seem like the selling of indulgences will cleanse your sins. It doesn't, but Martin made a list of claims that the Church was doing that went against the Bible. It was called the 95 Theses. He nailed it to the doors of the Wittenberg Church, Germany in 1517.
Luther constructed the 95 Theses, and when the Church condemned 41 of the 95 claims on the list, he was charged with Heresy. He burnt the Pope's letter publically as it was an Invitation to the 'Diet of Worms', Luther Publically Burnt it. Martin created Protestantism, which was later renamed as The Protestant Reformation.
Society first reacted by wrecking havoc among the town when they first heard the news that they were being lied to by the Catholic Church. After the Church found out about these claims, and summoned Martin to the Diet of Worms. The Diet of Worms was an assembly of highly-ranking officials in the Holy Roman Empire. Luther was found guilty to Heresy and charged. He was also declared an outlaw and was excommunicated.
