Solution

The correct option is A The Wittenberg Church
In 1517, Martin Luther, a German monk who disagreed with the ways of the church presented 95 thesis criticising the rituals and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. He nailed a printed copy on the door of the Wittenberg Church. Due to the rise in literacy, intellectual atmosphere and the far reaching circulation of the print material, the church couldn’t silence him.
