Details: This poster is of a Portrait of Martin Luther, by Hans Brosamer.
Hans Brosamer (ca. 1500 - 1552) was a German painter, and a minor member of the Little Masters, a group of German printmakers. Martin Luther (10 November 1483 - 18 February 1546) changed the course of Western civilization by initiating the Protestant Reformation. As a priest and theology professor, he confronted indulgence salesmen with his The Ninety-Five Theses in 1517. Luther strongly disputed their claim that freedom from God's punishment of sin could be purchased with money. His refusal to retract all of his writings at the demand of Pope Leo X in 1520 and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles V at the Diet of Worms meeting in 1521 resulted in his excommunication by the pope and condemnation as an outlaw by the emperor.
