In “The Minister 's Black Veil” Nathaniel Hawthorne writes about a minister named Mr. Hooper who changes his whole life to try to show the people in his congregation that they are living in sin and need to change their ways. The author Nathaniel Hawthorne was born around the time when Puritan life was the norm and everyone was a Puritan. Hawthorne also admired his ancestor’s ways and their lifestyles as much as he felt the need for people to have the freedom to strongly disagree about something (Grant).

The Influence of Martin Luther Luther’s encounter with death in a thunder storm introduced him to, just how helpless he was as a human being, that particular experience troubled his soul which led him to vow to become a monk. Luther had become very serious about his salvation and went to great lengths to ensure it, to no avail. Luther’s friend, Johannes Staupitz, suggested that Luther had wasted enough time with his salvation dilemma, he should consume his time with the Bible.
