Five hundred years after Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg Castle Church, this book offers readers a chance to explore his work, his journey of faith and questioning, and his legacy. The first part of the book presents ninety-five precious objects that trace the footsteps of the young monk on his route towards the Reformation. The second part shifts focus from things to people, offering accounts of ninety-five people—composers, artists, filmmakers, and more like Martin Luther King Jr., Astrid Lindgren, Sophie Scholl, Pier Paolo Pasolini, and Edward Snowden, to name a few—who over the past five centuries have made art that refers to the work or life of the great reformer. The whole package is a brilliant reminder of a singular life—one that changed the world forever.
