On October 31, 1517 Martin Luther, an ordained priest and professor of philosophy at the University of Wittenberg, affixed on the church door of Wittenberg his "Disputation of Doctor Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences," better known as the "The Ninety-five Theses." The document was a fervid expression of the genuine nature of penitence as well as a declaration of objection against the sale of indulgences.
Luther's act and his "The Ninety-five Theses" document, without intention, marked the start of the Protestant Reformation. Luther would go on to publish three additional documents outlining the fundamental principles of the Reformation and is remembered as the founder of Protestantism.
