These places in Saxony-Anhalt are all associated with the
lives of Martin Luther and his fellow-reformer Melanchthon. They
include Melanchthon's house in Wittenberg, the houses in Eisleben where
Luther was born in 1483 and died in 1546, his room in Wittenberg, the
local church and the castle church where, on 31 October 1517, Luther
posted his famous '95 Theses', which launched the Reformation and a new
era in the religious and political history of the Western world.
