128 Words1 Pages
Martin Luther was a monk and a professor at the university of wittenberg. This is where he lectured about the bible. Martin Luther's 95 thesis was an act against the selling of indulgences. He thought that the selling of indulgences was a harm to the church and he acted against it. He did not think of it as rebelling, but he sent letters to the high bishop and the rest of the church counsel. With the printing press thousands of copies of the 95 theses were made and handed out. When the pope himself heard about the 95 theses he said that Martin Luther was just a drunk and that when he sobered up he would take back everything he had said. But that was not the case.
