The German blacksmith Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press sometime before 1450.
His invention enabled the printing of lengthy texts that people were able to use to spread their ideas.
In 1518, the theologian Martin Luther used Gutenberg’s invention to print German copies of his Latin book 95 Theses.
The subsequent popularity of this book across Europe became one of the driving forces of the Protestant Reformation.
Gutenburg’s printing press enabled the dissemination of ideas that opened up people’s minds to new ways of thinking and looking at the world, and it’s a classic example of just how powerful ideas and books are.
