The Protestant Reformation began October 31, 1517, in Wittenberg, Germany, when Martin Luther posted his thoughts about theological topics and the practices of the Church. That simple action began the Reformation — a movement that changed Western society. The Gospel of Grace Alone, Faith Alone, and Word Alone was rediscovered.
