  • He translated the Bible into the language of the people and translated the mass into the vernacular. He is also credited with increased literacy for the common man, the popularization of public schooling and the education of women. He translated the Bible into colloquial German so it could be understood by everyone. They were printed copies of the Latin Vulgate which most people could not read. He also restored many authentic Christian doctrines and abolished many unfounded heresies. Luther abolished compulsory celibacy of the clergy and helped to restore the political concept of "the freedom of religion."
