Looking forward to next weekend, Reformation Day is celebrated by Protestant Christians on October 31st, although it often plays a mute second fiddle to the cultural phenomenon of Halloween. According to the influential Reformation theologian Philip Melanchthon, October 31st, 1517 was the day that the German monk Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, regarded as the start of the Reformation. Today, we will explore Luther’s action on that day and how his work fueled a major shift in the Christian traditions.
