German language history:

Portrait of Martin Luther
by Lucas Cranach

Culture fact
Martin Luther's translation of
the Bible from Greek and Latin
into the German vernacular
first made the text widely
accessible to common people.
His translation is the version
still most commonly used
by German speakers today.
Beyond that, his German Bible
also helped bridge the many
German dialects that existed
at the time and established
the basis of a standard form
of the language.
