Oct. 31 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. It began quietly enough when an equally quiet monk named Martin Luther created a document, now famously known as the “95 Theses,” protesting various corruptions on the part of the Church. He sent this document of protest to Albert of Brandenburg, Archbishop of Mainz on this date and famously nailed it to the All Saints Church and universities in Wittenberg, Germany at about the same time. Luther was then a professor of moral theology at the University of Wittenberg. The issues Luther brought up included priests selling indulgences, whether human beings were free to choose between good and evil, and the pardoning of sins through faith.
