It’s not Halloween it’s Reformation Day!

While the western world goes crazy for candy and costumes, just remember that it was on this day in 1517 that Martin Luther wrote to his bishop, Albert of Mainz, protesting the sale of indulgences. He enclosed in his letter a copy of his “Disputation of Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences,” which came to be known as The Ninety-Five Theses.

Whether or not he really nailed this document to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, his “disputation” sparked the Reformation.

If Reformation or ecclesiastical history is your thing, we have plenty of titles for you to induldge in (or maybe add to your Christmas wish-list). Click the image of Luther below to find out more!
