Martin Luther

            Martin Luther grew up in a time when there was basically one religion to look upon. Luther was born on November 10, 1483, in Eisleben, Germany. He was raised Catholic by his family that was held together by his father, Hans. Hans was a miner, and he worked his way up to the middle class by leasing mines and furnaces. With the money that he earned, he bought his family a house, and he became a well-respected citizen of their new hometown, Mansfeld. At seven years old, Martin began his schooling to fill his father's dream of becoming a lawyer. At school, he learned the basics and was taught Latin. The students were not only to learn how to speak Latin, but they also had to speak the language at all times. At age thirteen, a new school boarded young Luther. He was sent thirty miles north to the city of Magdenburg. His time spent there was short. The year that he attended the school, he learned of his ambition to serve God. Luther spoke fondly of the Brothers at the school. They showed Luther what it was like to witness God's power. Martin finished off his boarding school years at St. George's School, located in Eisenach. Luther had many great memories of St. George's, including one of his teachers, Johann Trebonius. Luther enjoyed Trebonius" teachings because of the equality that was displayed between the students and the teacher. St. George's also gave Luther the ability to see what a life of the religious order was like. In 1501, Martin left Eisenach, but his schooling was not complete. Hans Luther sent his son to the University of Erfurt to maintain the dream of him becoming a lawyer. By 1505, Luther had completed the Bachelor's program and received his Master's degree. He was on his way to becoming the lawyer that his father had always dreamed of, until June 1505.
             On his way back to the University after visiting his family, Martin was caught in a thunderstorm, and a flash of lightning hit him.
