Reformation Day

On this day (31 October) 500 years ago, a German monk and professor nailed a document on a church door in Wittenburg, Germany to protest against the sale of indulgences. The man is Martin Luther and the document is known as the 95 Theses. This event would mark the beginning of the Holy Protestant Reformation and a century of struggle against the Roman Catholic Church.
