Doctor Martin Luther 

Reformer and Educator

Born: November 10, 1483
Eisleben, Germany
Died: February 18, 1546
Eisleben, Germany

Luther was called as professor to the University of Wittenberg and was ordained a priest in 1507.  On October 31, 1517, Luther posted an announcement of his famous 95 thesis to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg.  He authored the large and small catechisms and the first congregational hymn book.  Luther strongly advocated Christian education for boys and girls.  In 1534 he completed the task of translating the entire Bible into the German language.  Luther's watchword of the Reformation was: "The Scriptures alone, by Grace alone, through Faith alone."  Luther's famous words spoken before the Diet at Worms on April 18, 1521, were: "I can not and will not recant!... Here I stand: I can not do otherwise! Gold help me! Amen."
