Luther and the Bible

Our bilingual and wheelchair accessible permanent exhibition “Luther and the Bible” will take you on a fascinating, multimedia journey of discovery:

Follow Martin Luther on his path from Latin school student and choirboy in Eisenach to reformer and creator of his historic translation of the Bible. Explore Luther’s world and look forward to unique medieval art treasures, works by Cranach, the baptismal register entry for Johann Sebastian Bach and the famous “Luther chambers” from the year 1356. Learn from the exceptional objects on display how, why and with whom Luther translated the Bible and the momentous impact the Luther Bible has had on language, literature and music over the last 500 years.

The permanent exhibition was revised and expanded in 2022, the anniversary year marking 500 Years of Bible Translation. At three additional, interactive media stations, you can now learn the surprising history of Luther’s most famous hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God”, trace the Luther Bible’s influence on vernacular translations in Europe and explore the way different themes in the Bible were altered in different periods.
