This Halloween is the 500th birthday of the modern world. On October 31, 1517, a scholarly monk named Martin Luther posted 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, a town in modern-day Germany. He hoped that the large theological community in the city would be interested in debating the Catholic Church’s practice of selling indulgences, which were then advertised by the Church as a way the faithful could literally buy their way into Heaven. But Luther’s modest invitation for discussion quickly got out of his control.
