Martin Luther did not support the Peasant's Revolt of 1524. He never took part in the revolt and he encouranged peasants to obey their lords and nobles. The reason nobles and landlords frowned upon Martin Luther was the fact that he started the Reformation Era, one of the causes sparking the boldness in peasants to start Peasant's Revolt.
