Martin Luthers 95 Thesen, in denen er gegen Missbräuche beim Ablass und besonders gegen den geschäftsmäßigen Handel mit Ablassbriefen auftrat, wurden am 31. Oktober 1517 als Beifügung an einen Brief an den Erzbischof von Mainz und Magdeburg, Albrecht von Brandenburg, das erste Mal in Umlauf gebracht. Da eine Stellungnahme Albrechts von Brandenburg ausblieb, gab Luther die Thesen an einige Bekannte weiter, die sie kurze Zeit später ohne sein Wissen veröffentlichten und damit zum Gegenstand einer öffentlichen Diskussion im gesamten Reich machten.
