His father had wanted him to become a lawyer, but in 1505 came a life-changing event for Luther. Stuck in a thunderstorm, he cried out to St. Anne and promised to become a monk if he survived. This decision disappointed his father, but Luther kept his promise. LUTHER'S ACCOMPLISHMENTS Martin Luther had made great contributions during the Renaissance by creating the spark that ignited the Protestant Reformation, translating the Bible into German, and inspiring the development of congregational singing in Christianity. He gave Christians the ability to DIET OF WORMS AND RETURN TO WITTENBERG On May 8, 1521, the Diet of Worms released the Edict of Worms, banning Luther’s works and declaring him a heretic. Despite all this, Luther managed to stay hidden for months at the Wartburg Castle, translating the Bible from Greek to German during this time.
Luther returned to Wittenberg in May 1522 to begin organizing the new Lutheran church. LATER YEARS During the Peasant’s revolt in 1524, Luther supported the nobles and suppressed the peasants. Thousands of peasants died but the Lutheran church’s influence kept expanding. Later on in 1533-1546, Luther served as the dean of theology at the University of Wittenberg. During this period, he suffered many illnesses, and was under various threats of arrest.
On February 18, 1546, Martin Luther passed away leaving his wife (Katharina von Bora) and his six children behind. BIBLIOGRAPHY By Angela, Jathniel, and Jimmy MARTIN LUTHER LUTHER'S CHALLENGE In 1517, Pope Leo X announces a round of indulgences to rebuild St. Peter’s Basilica. To protest this, Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the Wittenberg Church's door. He argued that monetary payments could not pardon sins.

October 1518, Martin Luther was ordered to recant his work by the authority of the pope. He refused, saying that he would not recant unless he was proven wrong.
Martin Luther was excommunicated in 1520. ↑ Photo of All Saints' Church (Wittenberg Castle Church) read the Bible for themselves. In the end, his work had an immense impact on Western
Civilization. <← Martin Luther's room at the Wartburg Castle Today, due to the Protestant Reformation, there is a variety of Christian denominations. Christians have the ability to read the Bible themselves. If the 95 Theses weren't written, this remarkable change wouldn't have happened and we wouldn't have this diversity we have now. ← ← THE IMPACT The End Breakdown of Christian > Denominations. (2013) The first few years of monastery life were difficult for Luther; he could not find religious enlightenment. At age 27, he was given an opportunity to be a delegate to a church conference in Rome. Unfortunately, the amount of corruption Luther saw there, disappointed him greatly.

Upon return home he enrolled in the University of Wittenburg. Through studying scripture, Luther finally realized that the key to salvation was faith alone. ↑ This is what the Univerity of Wittenburg (Now called, "Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg") looks like today.
