About Ottmar Horl Sculpture – Martin Luther – Red
In Martin Luther (1483–1530) we see the great reformer who rediscovered the relationship between liberty and responsibility and, in the course of the Reformation, initiated (among other things) the separation of church and state. Every year on 31 October, Protestant Christians celebrate the beginning of the Reformation in 1517. This was the day on which Luther is thought to have publicised his ninety-five theses at the Castle Church of Wittenberg. A professor of theology, Luther was branded a heretic, while simultaneously becoming one of the most prominent theologians in Germany. At the Imperial Diet of Worms in 1521, he refused to withdraw his writings. The words he proclaimed on that occasion are legendary: “Here I stand. I cannot do otherwise.”
“It should not be forgotten that, with regard to his writings, Luther profited from the emerging art of book printing and the possibility of multiplication. Luther espoused the principle of the series in order to spread his message far, wide and quickly, especially concerning the editions of the New Testament first published in German in 1522,” as Ottmar Hörl puts it.
