Martin Luther (1483 – 1546) was a German friar, priest, professor of theology and iconic figure of the Protestant Reformation.

In 1512, Desiderius Erasmus, a Dutch scholar and the leader of the North European Assassins, began to notice Martin Luther's new views on Christianity and realized that the church would enter a state of chaos. Erasmus wrote a letter to Claudia Auditore da Firenze, temporary leader of the Italian Assassins, to inform them of the young priest.[1]

In 1517, Luther nailed the Ninety-five Theses to a church door,[2] and in this Luther disputed the claim that absolution from sin could be paid for. He was excommunicated by Pope Leo X and condemned as a heretic.[3]

Martin Luther is said to have celebrated Mass in Santo Stefano.[4]
