Martin Luther ' s Pulpit

Lutherstadt Wittenberg , Germany is the home of four UNESCO sites which honor the work of Martin Luther. The two churches, Castle Church and St. Marien Parish Church, are being restored in preparation for the five hundred year anniversary of Martin Luther’s posting of his ninety five thesis or reforms.
Lutherhaus is a museum displaying his actual home and the manner in which his words spread across Europe. This wooden pulpit is
where he began preaching against indulgences.
At a time when only 10 % of the population was literate he had a talent for making his written words sound like a sermon.
