Where can I find a copy of the proof that proves Fermat's Last Theorem? Also, what different mathematical topics would I need to know to fully understand all of the syntax and reasoning in the proof? Thanks for the help!

Here's a link the the paper:
Wiles, A. J. "Modular elliptic curves and Fermat's Last Theorem", Annals of Mathematics, 141 (1995), 443-551.
It'll take most people several lifetimes of study to get close to understanding it all in perfect detail.
