He was originally planning on becoming a lawyer but, a life changing experience caused him to become a monk. When visiting Rome, he was horrified at the sale of indulgences. Through his studies of scripture, he began to stuggle with gaining Religious Enlightment and struggled with understanding religion.He came to the conclusion that in order to gain salvation one must not fear god but have faith in him. This revelation led him to many of his great accomplishments.
