The inspiring story of Luther’s life, brilliantly paired with historical art, featuring moments in his transformation from a simple monk into a religious firebrand. Luther’s call for justice would echo down the ages to our own time. His is a story that speaks to us as strongly today as it did 500 years ago. In 1517 a humble monk by the name of Martin Luther posted a list of 95 grievances against the Church of Rome, and in so doing he changed the course of history. Never had anyone so openly questioned the Church’s authority to collect money by such means as selling forgiveness for people’s sins. No one could suspect?not even Luther himself?that his speaking out would herald the beginning of a new movement that came to be known as the Reformation, splintering the Church into many factions.
