Martin Luther's attack on the all powerful Catholic Church was a knife to the heart of an empire that had endured for over a thousand years.

But Luther would do more than revolutionise the Church, he offered the Christian world a new vision of man's relationship with God and, in turn, redefined man's relationship with authority in general.
