Luther, German leader of the Protestant Reformation, 1483-1546, translator of the Bible

Fishburn and Hughes: A German religious reformer of intense vitality who inaugurated the Reformation on 31 October 1517 by fixing on the church door at Wittenburg his ninety-five theses against the penitential system of the Church and the sale of indulgences by the Dominican Johann Tetzel. For this act he was excommunicated by Pope Leo X and his writings were burnt. Luther based his doctrine on the individual responsibility of all believers for adherence to the truth as expressed in the bible and on salvation by the grace of God alone. When in 1521 he was summoned by Charles V to the Diet of Worms he made the celebrated speech which ended with the words: 'Here I stand, I cannot do otherwise, God help me, amen.' In 1525 he married a nun who had renounced her vows. Luther's greatest influence on the German people was through his translation of the bible. He completed it in 1532, but revised it constantly until 1545. Through his translations and other writings he may also be regarded as the founder of the present literary language of Germany, that is, of New High German. Deutsches Requiem
