Martin Luther


Today, Halloween, in 1517 Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door at Wittenberg Castle church. I invite Zaphod and Cultman to comment and defer to their insight and expertise.

And thus today should more importantly be known as the birthday of the protestant reformation as opposed to the more popular glorification of all things dark and evil.

Certainly an important historical figure... Too bad he was such an anti-semite. (link)

Z,That was a good read. It seems that most of Christendom was fairly anti-Semitic back then. The Counter-Reformation in Spain as well as Rome were times of renewed attacks against Jews.
