    I was quite shocked when I read this:

    "Today, the majority of Luther researchers see it as fact, that Luther did not nail his theses to the door of the Castle Church."

    I'm inclined to date the beginning of the Reformation from the burning of the Papal bull on Dec 10, 1520 ... but it is debatable.

    I found this in the most recent CT Mag. I believe there's another article about it at the link below, though I'm not sure you'll be able to read it unless you are a Christianity Today subscriber.

    On October 31, 2017, we celebrate the 500th birthday of the Protestant Reformation. While historians debate whether Martin Luther really did nail his 95 Theses to the Castle Church door in Wittenberg on this date 500 years ago, we have records that he sent that same document to the Archbishop of Mainz on this day, effectively kicking off the Reformation. So we commemorate that historic event on the day before All Saints Day to recognize this watershed event in Christian history.
