On This Day in Church History: Martin Luther Posted His 95 Theses

95 ThesesIn the little town of Wittenberg, Germany, on this day, October 31, 1517, an Augustinian priest nailed a challenge on the church door, where it was common to make announcements of the sort.  Within the same week, copies of whatever this young monk nailed on the church dooor, began to be discussed throughout the surrounding regions; and within a decade, Europe itself was shaken by what was nailed on that church door, from the little town of Wittenberg, Germany. Later generations would mark Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 theses on the church door as the beginning of the Protestant Reformation.

    Martin Luther is my man! He was one courageous guy!
    Some say he did not actually nail the thesis on the door of Wittenburg himself. But moot point. The thesis made history. Yayy!
