  • Letter to Pope 95 Thesis
  • Guards! I am in the bath, get that!
  • Here we have Martin Luther, a brave,brutally honest man, who was an ecclesiastical reformer in the late 1500's to early 1600's. He was a former Monk, and challenged papal authority countless times. He can also be seen eating his favourite food, Sauerkraut.
  • Less power for the Pope! Stop selling indulgences!
  • Lets Start A Reformation!
  • Information Night
  • Born on the 10th of November 1483 in Eisenben, Germany, Luther became a Monk at the age of 19, a life not liked by many, but one that which he thrived in and enjoyed greatly. He was all about that Faith, 'bout that Faith, no trouble.
  • I am distancing myself because I reject several Church teachings...
  • About 2 years after becoming a monk, Luther felt that the Church could be improved, so he wrote a letter to the Church on 95 ways that the Church could improve. This is what sparked Luther's initial grudge with the Church. The Church did not like the letter. He bolted the letter to the Church Door, which sparked the reformation.
  • "Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." -Martin Luther
  • Luther was then excommunicated. He believed that the papacy was extremely corrupt, and took a stand against the selling of indulgences. He went as far as to translate the Bible into Vernacular, and then he started the religious upheaval to purify the Church, known as the Protestant reformation. Luther was joined by Henry VIII and John Calvin for the upheavel.
  • Luther argued for less power for the papacy, and more for the pastors, along with a string of others including stopping the selling of indulgences. He rejected several teachings, and distanced himself greatly from the Pope. It was around this time that the slow acting church made a Catholic Counter Reformation.
  • Both reformations ended with the Thirty Years War (1648). The effects were were various lasting political changes, quite a bit more peace, and in general a more stable and safe society and Church. Luther went on to start his own religion, Lutheranism, which advocates a doctrine of justification.
