Martin Luther was the first person to translate the New Testament, and later the entire Bible into German. The New Testament was first published in 1522, and the translation of the Old Testament followed after, which allowed for an entire German Bible in 1534. Luther spent the rest of his life refining the translation.
Martin Luther was a gifted preacher, but soon his theology clashed with that of the Catholic Church, and on Halloween night of 1517, Luther changed history when he nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the church door in Wittenberg. Because of his new convictions, Luther felt that he needed to protest the Church’s sale of indulgences. It is said that Luther started the Protestant Reformation by this single act, although men such as John Wycliffe had already laid the foundation upon which Luther built.
