Treasures of the ReformationBook - 2016
In autumn 2016, exhibitions commemorating the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Reformation will be shown in the American cities of Minneapolis, New York, and Atlanta. They offer a comprehensive picture of the life and work of Martin Luther, his Reformation, its cultural-historical context and lasting impact. This catalogue brings together a thematically structured description of the various exhibits, most of which are being shown abroad for the first time. Original Luther objects and autographs as well as archaeological finds from the Luther sites in Eisleben, Mansfeld, and Wittenberg illuminate the personality of the Reformer and his environment. They are supplemented by a spectacular collection of artistic and graphic masterpieces, sculptures, objects d'art and important printed works. Seen as a whole, they offer a unique overview of the important cultural treasures of the birthplace of the Reformation. Exhibition: Several locations, USA (2016/2017).
