Legends about Luther

Nailing the 95 theses Such a well-known and discussed personality as the Reformer Dr. Martin Luther provides an ideal basis for the imagination to run wild and create stories which tend to distort reality. Anecdotes and legends about Luther are the result.
On top of that, Luther lived in a time during which the belief in witches, the devil, supernatural happenings and the end of the world was wide spread among the common people.
The truth of most of these legends is very minimal, but the entertainment value is high.
