(1821-1890) This man was an adventurer, linguist, scholar, swordsman, rogue, genius -- he possessed wild, monstrous talents and was burdened by defects nearly as grave. Continually at odds with the sentiments of his times, his translation of the Arabian Nights and sundry Indian and Persian amatory manuals scandalized society. At the same time, he was an unmistakable Victorian.

Good luck.

"I was born in 1483 in Germany. After attending the best University in Germany, receiving my Masters Degree, I shocked my parents and friends and decided to become an Augustinian monk. A number of writings attest that this decision was made during a terrible storm.

The life of a monk during my time was hard, and consisted of fasting, prayer and work. A monk's day began at 3 am with the first hourly prayers. This time molded me, above all I found a close relationship to the Bible which characterized my later life and work.

In 1507, I was ordained as a priest and started studying Theology at the University of Erfurt. During my studies, I came into contact with the ideas of the Humanists and embraced their slogan 'Ad Fontes!' - Back to the Source! For me this meant the study of the Bible in its original Hebrew and Greek.

I began teaching and writing which went against popular church doctrine. I was told to discontinue my teachings and, rather than concede, I burned the document, along with other popular catholic books and writings. By this time, I had amassed quite a following and many other priests joined with me. For my actions, I was excommunicated by the Pope and declared a heretic.

My disassociation with the Catholic Church and the events that followed led to the formation of a new religious doctorine, which was named after me."

Who am I?

Martin Luther? (Maybe you didn't mean to give it away in the clue!) BTW, rent "Luther" if you haven't seen it. Very good movie.
