04 Jun Protestant reformer Martin Luther’s 16th Century notes found
A first edition of one of the most important works of the man who inspired the Protestant Reformation has been discovered in a library in France.
The publication by German theologian Martin Luther, called On the Freedom of a Christian, dates back to 1520.
This was a year before he was excommunicated by the Pope for criticising the Catholic Church.
It includes around 50 notes written in red by Luther himself, indicating changes he wanted for a second edition.
