Martin Luther may have been the Father of the Reformation, but there were many others whose support enabled the Reformation to change the world. Luther found great support among his contemporaries, including his wife, Katharina von Bora, as well as his close friends Philipp Melanchthon and Lucas Cranach the Elder, just to name a few. Even after his death, Luther’s beliefs continued to inspire supporters of his cause, including great names like Johann Sebastian Bach and Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, the Father of American Lutheranism.
