Martin Luther — a pious monk and fiery orator who became the “Great Reformer” — came from a humble, pastoral corner of Germany’s heartland. It’s a land of half-timbered villages, rolling hills, and fanciful castles — and where Luther’s bold attempts to reform the Catholic Church launched the Protestant Reformation. October 2017 marked the 500th anniversary of this event, which, along with the Renaissance and as part of the rise of humanism, contributed greatly to the birth of our modern world.
