Biography of Martin Luther

Luther Memorial in Wittenberg
Martin Luther is without doubt one of the most important individuals in German history. Fittingly, in 1821, he became the first commoner to have a public statue dedicated to him. It stands on the market square in Wittenberg, the town where Luther spent most of his life. No other church reformer had such a far-reaching influence on later generations as the former Augustinian monk.
