This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and Martin Luther posting his ninety-five theses on the door of All Saints’ Church and other churches in Wittenberg, Germany. Whether he actually did post the theses publicly has long been disputed, however his influence on Christianity hasn’t. The timeline below, created from Martin Luther: Rebel in an Age of Upheaval, highlights a few key moments in the reformer’s life from his early start, to changing his name, and translating the New Testament into German.
