The year 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of his “95 theses” (or scholarly arguments) on the Castle Church door in Wittenberg, Germany. It was a paper that changed the world. Because of the action of this little known monk, there would be dramatic changes in religious, social and political life in Europe. This great anniversary will be marked in fitting style, with a tour visiting sites important to Luther’s life and works. Follow in the footsteps of Martin Luther throughout Germany and embark on a fascinating journey to the great distant age of the Reformation.
We shall visit some of the special places associated with Luther’s life and learn about the many contributions of this remarkable 16th century Biblical scholar and translator, teacher and communicator. Included will be visits to his place of birth and death as well as where he was baptized and a number of sites related to his 95 Theses and their effect on society at the time.
He was excommunicated by the Pope, declared an “outlaw” by the Emperor, but courageously continued to hold his stand.
