This image depicts a young Martin Luther.

He was 34 years old when he nailed his "95 Theses" to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.

He later said:

I would never have thought that such a storm would rise from Rome over one simple scrap of paper.

Luther certainly could never have predicted that his actions in writing, and publicizing, his "one simple scrap of paper" would began a "Reformation."
