MEMOIR Iiaetijt Luther, the illustrious German divine and reformer of tbe church, was the son of John Lotter, or Lauther, (which name our reformer changed to Luther,) and of Margaret Lindeman, and was born atEisleben.atown of Saxony, in the countyof Mansfeldt, November 10th, 1483. His father's extraction and condition were originally but mean, and his occupation that of a miner j* it is probable, however, that by his application and industry he improved the circumstances of his family, for we find him afterwards raised to the magistracy of a considerable rank and dignity in his province. Luther was initiated very early into letters; and, having learned the rudiments of grammar while he continued at home with his parents, was, at the ago of thirteen, sent to a school at Magdeburg.

About the Author:

Martin Luther (1483, 1546) was a German monk, a theologian and church reformer, he is considered to be the founder of Protestantism. Luther was a professor of Bible at the University of Wittenberg when he posted his famous 95 Theses (1517). In addition to writing many books, Luther translated the Bible into German. Luther believed that salvation was only by faith in Jesus, unmediated by the church. He challenged papal authority by emphasing the Bible as the only source of religious authority and believed the church to be a priesthood of all believers.These ideas helped to inspire the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization. He married Katharina von Bora thus initiating the practice of clerical marriage within Protestantism.- Publisher.
