"Martin Luther (1483-1546) was the German professor of theology who rejected the teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic Church and thus began the Protestant Reformation. Martin Luther was also a composer, priest and monk. His translation of the Bible into German instead of Latin began to make the Bible more accessible to the general population. This had a tremendous impact on both the church and German culture. This also fostered the development and writing of an English translation, the Tyndale Bible.
Homes and Haunts of Luther is a well written book full of beautiful and interesting engravings. Each chapter moves on from Martin Luther’s youth in Eisleben in Saxony, through each stage of Luther’s life; the Diet of Worms to Wittenberg." ~ text extracted from illustrated_books.co.uk
