Martin Luther – first a monk, then a radical reformer and finally, involuntary so, the first Protestant. What happened to make him a heretic and lead him to pick a quarrel with the pope? Christian Nürnberger sets out to follow the tracks of Martin Luther and demonstrates how this courageous and single-minded man rocked the Catholic Church to its foundations and with it the entire world as it was known then, and how this still affects our lives even today. Petra Gerster takes a look at Katharina Bora, the runaway nun who set her mind on marrying Martin Luther and no other man. This is a an instructive, personal and highly entertaining encounter with Luther and his wife Käthe – written by two bestselling authors and impressively illustrated by Irmela Schautz.
