On the 500th anniversary of Luther nailing his 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Peter Stanford examines the man, the myth and the mass movement that his act of rebellion provoked. Journalist and broadcaster,
Peter Stanford explores this complex, often charismatic man of God. Far from being gloomy, as is his reputation, Martin Luther brings new light, and in many ways he is a man of the moment.
