Free guess: Nicolaus Copernicus
Some people work hard, go to work every day, pay taxes and their mortgage, worry about parking tickets. And some just win lotteries.

Copernicus it is

Jamiet99uk's dirty tricks led me to waste my free guess.

Cunning, very cunning . . .

You're right, ha ha.

Then fine, I guess Marco Polo.
No, not Marco Polo.

Not sure how helpful it might appear, but I can add as a hint, that our subject was a clergyman, thus his Penistone was OFFICIALLY not to be used in a certain way.

Hm, my first hunch was Martin Luther, but it seems I have been off there.
To be explicit, my negation of his involvement in carpentry was directly referring to Luther. But since it has only been implied by you, I'm not going to count it as a free guess.

Hm, my first hunch was Martin Luther, but it seems I have been off there. Nationality wise (if we can even speak of a 'nation' at that time) there were Poland, South Germany, Spain, Portugal and Italy who remained staunched catholic (however if it is before the reform the scandinavian lands might a...

Would historians today identify him as a protestant?
No, he was a Catholic through and through.

Was he mainly involved in matters of the Clergy (like a theologian, monk, priest, pope or someone who would nail his thesis on a door)?
If we remove 'mainly' from the question, the answer will be 'yes'. However, he was not involved in carpentry, as suggested.

Politician/Statesman/Royalty ?
He was involved in politics to some degree, but this was not the domain of his activity for which he will be remembered.

Did this person have a Penistone?
Wtf autocorrect?

Did this person have a penis?
That's an extraordinary way to formulate this question LOL

The answer: I would assume that he had it, since he has always, without doubt, been identified as male.
