Martin Luther was one of the most influential and controversial figures in Christian history, due to his role in the Protestant Reformation. He was a German monk born on the 10th of November 1483 in the town of Eisleben, Saxony, in modern southeast Germany. Martin was born to a small family of peasant lineage, his father had little success as an ore smelter and a miner. Although mining was the family business, Hans Luther (Martin 's father) wanted his son to have a promising future so the family moved from Eisleben to nearby Mansfield, where Hans held an ore deposit.
