Reformation Day Posts

Each year since I have started my blog I have written posts about Reformation Day. Tonight I will give a recap of the posts and also share a few more that are related to the Reformation Movement.

Wartburg - Eisenach, Germany - Martin Luther - Reformation DayIn 2012 I shared pictures from a 2002 visit to Eisenach, Germany where Luther went to school when young and also later hid out from his enemies. The picture above shows his room in Wartburg. See: Reformation Day

Luther Haus - Eisenach, Germany - Reformation Day - Cotta Family - WartburgIn 2013 I shared another picture from the Lutherhaus and also more pictures from Wartburg. The post also gave some information about the original Luther grave plate.

Luther 2017, 500 years, Reformation Day, Martin Luther, Jena, GermanyYesterday I wrote a post titled Reformation Day 500. Actually it should have been Reformation Day VI, but since it was the 500th anniversary I decided to skip way ahead in my numbering šŸ™‚

Since I was in Jena, Germany last week I shared more pictures from the Stadtkirche Saint Michael.

Martin Luther Gravestone, Jena, Germany, Original Gravestone, St. Michael's churchEarlier this month I wrote a post about Luther’s Original Grave Plate. There is an interesting history behind the grave plate.

Wittenberg 360, Yadegar Asisi, Luther 1517, ReformationJust after my visit to Wittenberg last year I wrote a post about a very interesting mural that I visited in Wittenberg 360 Luther 1517.

Castle Church Wittenberg, Martin Luther, 95 theses, church doors, Mighty FortressI also wrote a post titled Castle Church Doors which is about what happened 500 years ago today. The post also contains some of the history of the doors. A little hint, the ones today are not the originals. Click on the link to learn the fate of the original doors.

There are a few more Reformation posts scattered throughout my blog, but these should keep you busy with a bit of reading šŸ™‚
