Luther in Dispute. Leipzig and the Consequences

Special exhibition at the Leipzig Museum of City History

The city of Leipzig is a nationally significant spot in Reformation history. This historical watershed moment is forever anchored in the city's memory and will receive special acknowledgement in the jubilee year.

The focus of the exhibition lies on the significant event of the Leipzig Disputation and its consequences for the course of reformatory development. Further themes includes the repressive transition phase until 1539, in which Duke Georg sought to halt the spread of the Reformation, the ushering in of the Reformation in Leipzig itself, and its evolution up to the Schmalkaldic War of 1547, which had great political repercussions for Saxony and the German Empire. The key exhibits on display will be the incunables from the collection of the Museum, jewellery such as Katharina von Bora’s original wedding ring, and the silver Luther Chalice as well as panel paintings and epitaphs by Lucas Cranach.
