In 1517, the religious reformer Martin Luther King wrote ‘Ninety Five Theses’. In this book, he criticised many of the practices and rituals of the Roman Catholic Church. His writings were reproduced in vast numbers and read widely. This led to a division within the church and to the beginning of Protestant Reformation. Luther believed that printing was the ultimate gift of God and the greatest one. Thus, print brought about a new intellectual atmosphere and helped spread the new ideas that led to reformation.
