When Martin Luther put forth his 95 theses against indulgences on October 31, 1517, he probably never imagined what would transpire--the Protestant Reformation. By the grace of Almighty God, out of Luther's bold act to reform the Catholic Church came a return to the biblical teachings of justification in Christ alone through faith alone.
If you want to study further, I've linked to a few key people below.
Happy Reformation Day to you!

"In the measure that we love the gospel, so let us place a strong emphasis on the languages. For it was not without reason that God wrote the Scriptures in two languages, the Old Testament in Hebrew and the New Testament in Greek. That language which God did not despise but rather chose above all others for his Word is the language which we also should honor above all others. It is a sin and shame that we do not learn this language of our Book, especially since God has now provided us people and books, and gives us all kinds of things which both help us with this task and at the same time stimulates us to do this."
Martin Luther, (1483-1546), Taken from Linguistic Key to the Greek New Testament, foreword from first edition, F. Rienecker & C. Rogers.
