The Reformation, sometimes called the Protestant Reformation, started in 1517 when Dr. Martin Luther, a German monk and professor of theology, nailed 95 statements or theses to the door of All Saint’s Church, commonly referred to as the Castle Church, in Wittenberg, Germany.
This was the beginning of Luther’s attempt to reform the Roman Catholic Church. Luther believed that the Bible is the only true source of religious authority and that salvation can only come through faith in Jesus Christ. 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation.
