31st October – On this Day in History…

On this day in history, 31st October…
1491 – Henry VII’s son, Henry (the future Henry VIII), was created Duke of York.
1517 – Martin Luther wrote to Albert, Archbishop of Mainz, and the Bishop of Brandenburg protesting against the sale of indulgences and sending them a copy of The Ninety-Five Theses (proper title: “Disputation of Martin Luther on the Power and Efficacy of Indulgences”).
According to Philipp Melancthon, “Luther, burning with passion and just devoutness, posted the Ninety-Five Theses at the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany at All Saints Eve, October 31”, rather than sending them in a letter, but no other contemporary source supports this.
2000 – I gave birth to my daughter, Verity Elizabeth! Happy birthday, Verity!

Happy birthday, Verity! =)
Is verity short for Veritas meaning truth? And why Elizabeth and not Anne? Just curious 😛 and for Verity, im wishing a very Happy Birthday 2 u darlin xx
Yes, Verity means truth – veritas, verdad… She was an IVF baby and Elizabeth was the nurse who took us through the process so she’s named after her. Thanks for the birthday wishes.
Happy Birthday Verity!
Happy birthday Verity!!!!!! 🙂
