A GREAT MAN



Martin Luther
Martin Luther earned his Bachelor's degree at the age of eighteen, and his Master's three years later. After nearly being killed by a lightning bolt, he left law school behind and entered the monastery. He is most famous for his challenges to the church's theories of buying indulgences, or "paying your way" to Heaven through good deeds. This philosophy became the basis of the Protestant church. He died after a series of visits to Mansfeld to negotiate ownership of his family's copper mines.

Martin Luther was a very complex and interesting person. I feel that he was a great man that God used in a mighty way
