On the 500th anniversary of the Protestant reformation, Peter Stanford presents a new appraisal of theological firebrand Martin Luther who triggered it. When Martin Luther pinned his 95 ‘Theses’ to the door of his local university church in Wittenberg, on 31 October 1517, he precipitated a religious and political upheaval across Europe which divided mainstream Christianity ever after.
