His father was a miner and smelter, and because his father knew the instability of his own occupation, he wanted his son to receive proper education, and eventually become a lawyer – which was known for being a secure career. After studying at the University of Erfurt in 1505, his father’s career plan for Luther was about to become a reality, until the July of 1505, when he was caught in a dreadful thunderstorm.
