Correct response: Who is Martin Luther?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
In time of Martin Luther, the church sold “indulgences”, essentially certificates believed to reduce the spiritual punishment for sins. Luther believed this was very wrong, both because he felt it absolved Christians from true repentance for their sins and sorrows, and because it prevented many from donating to the poor (as people were purchasing indulgences instead). In response, Luther created the Ninety-five Theses challenging the system of indulgences; by 1521, Luther had been excommunicated by the Catholic church.
