Description

Martin Luther changed the world. He inspired and provoked people, and he moved them and repulsed them – but he left no one cold. The volume invites the reader to study Luther at close quarters, to accompany him in his existential search and to enquire into his lasting importance for the present and the future . By examining 95 precious objects this publication to accompany the exhibition follows in the footsteps of the young monk Luther along his route towards the Reformation. Who was the man wh o published his theses against the trade in indulgences despite being in mortal danger? Whatstates, events and circumstances prepared the ground for this epoch – making posting of the theses? The second part of the volume presents 95 people. From Johann Seba stian Bach to Bruce Nauman, from Sophie Scholl to Pier Paolo Pasolini: irrespective of creed or life philosophy, people all over the world make reference to the great reformer. That is perhaps the most interesting thing about Luther: that he has continued to move people for 500 years.
