A tribute to the treasure trove of ecclesiastical art and architecture in the Diocese of Toledo.
After being ordained, Martin Luther became a professor of theology at the University of Wittenberg and it was where he eventually wrote his 95 Theses (although there is dispute as to whether or not he actually nailed them to the door of the Castle Church!). However, he was both born and died in Eiselben. He is buried in the Castle Church, underneath the pulpit. How apropos.If anyone would like to read the 95 Theses - which actually take the form of a thoughtful essay - you can do so here:http://www.iclnet.org/pub/resources/text/wittenberg/luther/web/ninetyfive.htmlThanks for posting the photos of St. Lucas. Such a truly beautiful church ...
If Tetzel hadn't been such a twit and the German nation hadn't been ready for an upheaval, and the political situation in the papacy had been better, I suspect the whole thing could have been avoided.
