Schlosskirche Wittenburg

“All Saints’ Church, commonly referred to as Schlosskirche (Castle Church) or Reformation Memorial Church to distinguish it from the Stadtkirche (Town Church) of St. Mary’s It is a Lutheran church in Wittenberg, Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It is the site where, according to Philip Melanchthon, the Ninety-five Theses were posted by Martin Luther in 1517. That act has been called the start of the Protestant Reformation. From 1883 onwards, the church was restored as a memorial site and re-inaugurated on 31st October 1892, 375 years after Luther’s posting.” Source: All Saints’ Church, Wittenberg – Wikipedia

I love the organ and woodwork.

        After my own heart, Sherry. I am slightly perturbed about this stance when I photograph a wedding next year. We may cover it with Jackie’s point and shoot Canon with an automatic flash.

    In the photo just after Luther’s tomb, do you know what that curious wreath-like ‘thingie’ might be? I kept looking at it, wondering if it was a wreath made of wheat (harvest season, and all that).

      I can thank my Nikon 7Z for some of the light. It is a pretty place 🙂
