Although the 2017 jubilee year begins on 31 October 2016, the Reformation Decade has been preparing for the 500th anniversary since 2008. ­Thematic Years have focused on various aspects of the Reformation, such as education, music and politics. At the heart of the jubilee celebrations will be several major exhibition ­projects that reflect the global influence of the Reformation.

From October 2016 onwards, German and US museums will realise two exhib­itions with support from the Federal Foreign Office. First, the exhibition “Here I Stand…” visits New York City, Minne­apolis and Atlanta with exhibits from the Halle State Museum of Prehistory, the Luther Memorials Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt, the Friedenstein Castle Foundation in Gotha and the German Historical Museum (Berlin), while the “Renaissance and Reformation” exhibition will go to Los Angeles. The project #HereIStand will not only be accessible to all as a digital exhib­ition, but can also be ordered worldwide. It presents the most important events in the history of the Reformation and their effects. Another highlight: reproduction of original exhibits using a 3D printer.
