Wittenberg - Luther City!

Martin Luther, the Father of Protestantism, found his life-path taking him to this small peasant town in 1508 where he taught theology at the University of Wittenberg. Primarily known as Lutherstadt Wittenburg, this town became the marking point of the Protestant Reformation with the posting of the 95 Theses. Luther and small town Wittenberg were knowingly going against the Pope and the Church of Rome.

Lexie above is lecturing to the class about Martin Luther’s act of nailing the 95 Theses to the City church door of Wittenburg. The doors in the background are believed to be the same place where Martin Luther nailed these Theses.

Olivia and Kylie share a good run down the main city street of Wittenburg. Impulsive urges to race someone down cobblestone roads is always a good impulse to follow J

Students had the opportunity to see the house of Martin Luther as well as the church that he preached in. Here the AMBEXers pause in front of the Luther-haus for a picture.

Kylee Mac lectures about the Papal Bull here to her class.
