95 Theses, The
The document that Martin Luther nailed to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg Germany, outlining what he believed to be the shortcomings and abuses within the Catholic Church.
Although many believe that Luther nailed these theses to the door of a church in Wittenberg, this notion has recently been criticised. In the 95 Theses, he objected to many policies and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church. Luther's action was in great part a response to the selling of indulgences by Johann Tetzel, a Dominican priest. Luther's charges directly challenged the position of the clergy as regards individual salvation.
