I would still plant a small apple tree today."
Martin Luther ( 1483 - 1546) was a German professor of theology, priest, composer, monk and a influential figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther decided to become a monk, joining a Augustinian monastery in 1505. He made this decision as his life was spared when he was riding a horse during a violent thunderstorm. In 1514 Luther became priest for Wittenberg's City Church.
Martin Luther began to reject the principles of the established Roman Catholic Church. In October 1517, he nailed a paper containing 95 statements to the door of a church in Wittenberg.
He died aged 62, in Eisleben, the city of his birth. He was buried in the Castle Church in Wittenberg, beneath the pulpit.
