The father of biblical translations

The German people owe a big deal of their language to a single man: the figure behind the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther.

Because of his translation of the Bible (from Ancient Greek to German), the country’s language shifted.

His translation was localized, so that, in his words, “the mother in the home and the plain man” could
understand it.

The accessibility of this popular book allowed the German tongue to refine itself, leading to the complex language we know today.
