500 years ago, Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door, marking the start of the world historical event that came to be called the Protestant Reformation. It precipitated a period of intense religious conflict and war in Europe that culminated in the 1648 Peace of Westphalia, giving rise to the political form of the nation-state.
