Why is Pope Leo the 10th important?
Pope Leo X (pontiff from 9 March 1513 to 1 December 1521) is most famous for being the pontiff at the time of Martin Luther's display of the 95 Theses. He was also the last pope to be elected to office not having been previously a member of the clergy. At the time of Luther's proclamation, Leo did not fully understand the effect of the action. After condemning 41 of Luther's teachings in a papal bull, which Luther burned after receiving a copy, Leo issued an excommunication of Luther in another papal bull on 3 January 1521. Leo also bestowed upon King Henry VIII of England the title of "Defender of the Faith," for condemning the works of Luther himself. Henry would later be excommunicated himself for disobeying the Pope (Clement VII), and his daughter Queen Elizabeth I would embrace the theology of Luther.

How did Pope Leo X punish Martin Luther?
Like a good Father, Pope Leo X attempted to reason with Martin Luther, and even offered him safe conduct to Rome so that they could meet personally, and discuss Luther's "issues". All attempts at reconciliation and even friendly gestures from Luther's superiors, of which the pope was the highest on earth, were, not just rebuffed, but actually belittled by M. Luther, which is just beyond comprehension. At the links below you will find two Papal Bulls by Pope Leo X, the first, Exsurge Domine is the Bull he issued condemning the errors of Martin Luther on 15 June 1520; the second, Decet Romanum Pontificem is the Bull of Excommunication of Martin Luther and all his followers issued on 3 January 1521.
