On October 31st, 1517, Martin Luther purportedly posted a copy of his Ninety-Five Theses to the door to the Wittenberg Castle Church. Luther's theses changed the course of Christianity forever. His faith in God and Jesus Christ gave him the strength and the conviction to speak his mind against the Catholic Church at a time when it was dangerous to do so. To celebrate the 500-year anniversary, BYU-Idaho Special Collections & Archives is telling the story of Luther's faith and his struggle with the traditions of the Catholic Church. Visit us in person or online to view original books and artifacts from Luther's life and to hear the story of his influence.
