German Priest, Theologian, Bible Translator, Hymn Composer
1483 - 1546
For those who have not heard of Martin Luther, he was a Catholic priest who inspired the Prostestant Reformation in 1517 by nailing his 95 theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany. He helped change the course of Christianity. I heard about Martin Luther early in my life, but I never knew that he translated the Bible from Latin to German or that he composed hymns. He had a creative nature.
And I believe as does Martin Luther that music heals the soul and takes us to a whole other world. Do you listen to music when your write or paint? What kind of music inspires your creativity? And if you compose music, are you ever inspired by a painting or a novel? I believe the arts are intertwined and interconnected and touch our souls at a deep level.
