Martin Luther's 95 theses was a turning point in the history of Western Civilization because he challenged the overall power of the Pope, Rome and the Catholic Church sparking others to do the same. His original statements snowballed into a religious revolution.
After Martin Luther wrote his Theses he wrote other things as well. He chose to stand up against the Catholic Church or die trying. While he was in hiding he translated the Bible from Latin to German so even common people and not just clergymen could read it. He was surprised at how people supported his ideas, but he did not like that they used violence to overturn the Church in Germany.
