Wiles's proof of Fermat's Last Theorem was published 25 years ago. Wiles's paper introduced many new ideas and methods which have since shaped the field of algebraic number theory. This colloquium talk intends to give a (biased) tour of these developments, especially with regard to questions that might be of interest to non-specialists.
