One day, Martian Luther was walking down the road and got struck by lightning.
He believed that this was gods message to become a monk. And that's what he did.
Martin was angered by this because he thought this was not true. So he created the...
Get your indulgences here! The free paper that washes away sins. Only a half years wage!
Martin hated the indulgences, and most importantly the corruptions in the church. So he wrote 95 things he hated about it. It's called the 95 theses.
So, he went to the church and posted them on the door for all to see.
The pope didn't like that, so he wanted him to take it back. But he didn't. So he got excommunicated from the church. And this is how Martin created a group of his followers who rebelled against the church. They were called the protestants. THIS IS CALLED THE REFORMATION.
