Martin Luther
b. 11-11-1483; Eisleben, Saxony, Holy Roman Empire, (Germany)
d. 2-18-1546: Eisleben

Martin Luther was a monk and theologian whose invitation, “out of love and zeal for truth and the desire to bring it to light”, to publically discuss the Ninety-Five Theses (that he nailed on the church door of Wittenberg in 1517) for reforming the Catholic Church, changed the course of Western civilization. His theology challenged the papacy by holding that salvation was a free gift of God and unmediated by the Church.

In 1521 a meeting at Worms resulted in the Edict of Worms which condemned the theologian Martin Luther for refusing to recant his religious beliefs.

Philipp Melanchthon, née Schwartzerd, was associated with Martin Luther in the Lutheran Reformation.

• see Girolama Savanarola as a precursor of Martin Luther.

Martin Luther quotes ~
• “Be a sinner and sin strongly, but more strongly have faith and rejoice in Christ.”
• “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.”
• “Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying.”
