500 Years of Reformation
Germany is celebrating 500 years of Reformation. New views of Martin Luther and a societal transformation that has endured until today.
The Reformation is one of the most far-reaching events in European history. Its impact and its initiators will be a subject of disscussion during the Reformation anniversary celebrations in 2017.
The Reformation quickly became a hugely successful export, and today only a minority of Protestants live in Europe. An exhibition in Berlin puts the spotlight on Sweden, South Korea, Tanzania and the USA.
Philipp Melanchthon was one of Martin Luther’s closest associates. This year, his home town, Bretten, is celebrating the 1,250th anniversary of its foundation.
