A rain storm in Germany

July 2, 1505: A rain storm in Germany helps launch the Protestant Reformation. While returning from a trip to visit his parents, Martin Luther, a law student, is caught in a violent thunderstorm near Stotternheim. Fearing for his life, he cries out for help, promising to become monk. Within two weeks, he does just that, making good on his promise.
