Luther's place

Halle (Saale)
RESIDENCE OF LUTHER’S ARCH NEMESIS

Residence of Luther's arch nemesis

Halle (Saale)

One of Luther's most powerful rivals resided in Halle. Cardinal Albert was Archbishop of both Magdeburg and Mainz and was an immensely powerful clerical dignitary, second in the ‘Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation’ only to the Pope himself. The Cardinal’s extravagant lifestyle, financed largely via the sale of indulgences, provoked Luther to write the letter in which his famous ninety-five theses were contained. The conflict which resulted would shake the Catholic Church to its very foundation. Succumbing to the pressures of the reformers, Cardinal Albert left his seat of power at Castle Moritzburg in 1541.

When Martin Luther died in Eisleben in 1546, his body was laid in repose in Halle for a night on its way to being transported to Wittenberg. The city continued to be an important location for Protestantism after Luther’s passing. In 1698, the pastor and university professor August Hermann Francke would found a so-called ‘school city’ (‘Schulstadt’) in Halle – a campus known today as the Francke Foundations – which projected the spirit of the Reformation throughout the whole world. The architecturally one-of-a-kind ensemble has been well-preserved and currently houses around 50 institutions, all of which are closely associated with Francke’s ideas and work.

Halle (Saale) erleben

The Marktkirche "Unser Lieben Frauen" (Market Church of Our Dear Lady) in Halle is rich in primary sources and other treasures of the Reformation. Visitors can see Martin Luther’s original death mask and a Renaissance pulpit from which Luther preached, according to lore.

The market church is home to Germany's oldest and one of its largest Protestant church libraries, the "Marienbibliothek". Its collection is made up of some 30,000 volumes, among them a number of Luther Bibles containing handwritten notes from the reformer himself.

Moritzburg (Castle Moritz) currently houses one of the state museums of Saxony-Anhalt and noteworthy collections of paintings, prints, sculptures, photographs, handicrafts, design objects, coins and medallions. Many of its rooms feature wood panelling, tile stoves, rugs, murals and paintings dating back to the days of Cardinal Albert of Brandenburg.

Halle cathedral is where Albert of Mainz kept his renowned 20,000 piece relic collection. Painters such as Lucas Cranach, Albrecht Dürer and Matthias Grünewald were all involved in the church’s decoration. When Cardinal Albert finally succumbed to the pressure of the reformers and left Halle, he took all of the precious works of art from the cathedral with him, leaving only the pulpit, the apostle figurines and the choir stalls behind.

What to see in Halle (Saale)

The track of Martin Luther

MARKET CHURCH

Martin Luther held three sermons at the Halle market church. After Luther passed away in Eisleben in 1546, his body was laid in repose in Halle for a night on its way to being transported to Wittenberg. The Reformer’s original death mask and a cast of his hands are on display in the crypt under the market church of Our Lady. The original pulpit from which Martin Luther gave the sermons mentioned above is also preserved. The market church is also home to the oldest and probably largest library of any Protestant church in Germany. The "Marienbibliothek" contains Luther Bibles of all kind, many of which bear notes that actually originated from the Reformer’s own hand.

Luther’s death mask can be viewed during regular opening hours (€2). During the winter months, the Watchmen’s tower is accessible only upon request. Enquiries can be made by calling +49 (0)345 12 29 984. The towers offer visitors the best possible vista from which to look out over the ocean of houses that make up the Halle skyline.

Castle Moritzburg

The city’s largest gallery is the Castle Moritzburg Foundation ("Stiftung Moritzburg"), an art museum of the federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, which takes its name from the time-honoured edifice in which it is housed.

Built originally to serve as both stronghold and castle, Castle Moritzburg was once the magnificent seat of the Archbishops of Magdeburg and has been home to the Halle art museum since 1904. Originally, it featured only craftwork but by 1920 modern painting and sculpture collections had been added as well. Amongst its holdings, the foundation counts collections of paintings, sculptures, graphic arts, photographs, craftwork and design, even coins and medallions. Highlights include artworks from the Classical Modern period and the nineteenth-century as well as medieval wood carvings. Works of Expressionist art are represented not only in the form of an in-house collection but via two collections permanently on loan to the Foundation as well— the Hermann Gerlinger collection and the Kracht collection. The museum also disposes of rich craftwork holdings as well as being home to the state numismatic collection ("Landesmünzkabinett"). In 2006, the Lyonel Feininger Gallery in Quedlinburg joined the Castle Moritzburg Foundation. The collection was supplemented by works from Classical Modern artists such as Lovis Corinth, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Klee and Emil Nolde. A particular spotlight must be placed one the artefacts provided by the German Foundation for Monument Protection ("Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz") which have been on permanent loan to the museum since 2005. A significant collection of graphic art from the GDR-period is on hand as well.

HALLE CATHEDRAL

Halle Cathedral has a modest appearance, partly because it lacks a steeple. But its appearance also has to do with the fact that the building was originally the church of a Dominican monastery founded in 1271. The cathedral is the only large-scale example of early Gothic architecture to be found in Halle and holds within it great treasures of Baroque art. Prior to the advent of the Reformation, the church had been the most important centre for theological studies and sacred art in the entire Central German region. The elongated, pillared hall featuring a slightly stilted nave and narrow side aisles is one of the oldest hall churches in Central Germany. Renowned for its remarkable acoustics, the church is a popular venue for concerts and theatrical performances alike. Attending an event like this is more than worthwhile for anyone planning a brief jaunt to Halle (Saale).

During the Age of Reformation, the former monastery was refashioned in the style of the Renaissance. Cardinal Albert used the church as a space to store his vast collections of relics and art starting in 1520. Today, only the pulpit, a portion of the choir stalls and the cycle of 17 statues lining the cathedral’s pillars remain from the original décor. The church has been the parish church of this Protestant congregation since 1692; services are still conducted here. Starting in 1702, George Frideric Handel was the organist in Halle for one year.

At the end of the 1950s a larger project to restore the building’s interior was launched. The renovation work succeeded in preserving the basic structure of the cathedral. The church is owned by the Saxony-Anhalt Cathedrals and Castles Foundation ("Domstiftung"). CHURCH SERVICES Sundays 10.00. In cathedral parish rooms in winter and cathedral in summer.

THE FRANCKE FOUNDATIONS

In the heart of Halle’s city centre stands a well-preserved and unique building ensemble made up of some 50 structures. The historical orphanage was built in 1700. It contains the cabinet of curiosities and natural artefacts, considered to be the oldest museum space in all of Germany. The "Francke cabinet" on the ground floor of the historical orphanage provides visitors with an overview of August Hermann Francke’s life and introduces them to the history of the Francke Foundations, stretching all the way from its establishment in 1698 to the present day.

Toward the close of the seventeenth-century, the historical library was constructed (1726-1728). It is considered to be the oldest preserved functional secular library building in Germany. The library’s Baroque repository contains some 35,000 writings from the sixteenth through nineteenth-centuries. Some Reformation-era manuscripts are also archived here, including a letter by Martin Luther.

The historical ensemble of buildings located on the campus ground behind the orphanage is constructed largely in the timber-frame style. It truly is a special type of open-air museum and includes one edifice which is over 330 feet (100 metres) long, making it the largest timber-frame house in Europe.

August Hermann Francke (1663-1727) was one of the most significant representatives of Pietism, a religious movement within German Protestantism. Two hundred years after the advent of the Lutheran confession, acting at the behest of the Danish King Frederick IV, August Hermann Francke would establish the first Evangelical Lutheran mission to what was then the Danish colony of Tranquebar in southern India, known today as Tharangambadi. Numerous pastors from Halle were dispatched to the far-reaches of the earth by Francke and his successors. Their task was to spread the Lutheran doctrine as well as the ground-breaking reformatory ideas which the Halle-brand of pietism had picked up and developed upon. As a result, Lutheran schools and orphanages based on the Halle model were opened in locations stetching from Scandinavia across the eastern edge of Central Europe to far away Siberia. Francke had already sent the first Lutheran pastor to Moscow by time the seventeenth-century had ended. The emissaries from Halle were able to exert a notable influence on Petrine Russia. In 1741, the pastor Heinrich Melchior Mühlenberg was dispatched to Pennsylvania in North America to take care of the Germans who had emigrated to that colony. Today, the man, better known as Henry Melchior Muhlenberg, is held in great esteem throughout the continent and is honoured as the patriarch of the Lutheran Church in America.

CHURCH OF ST. NICHOLAS

The Church of St. Nicholas in Böllberg dates back to the twelfth-century and is the only church in Halle included as a station on the Romanesque Road. Originally built by Dutch colonists as a single-nave hall church, the building has been preserved almost completely in its original condition. It is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of sailors and helper in times of flood.

Characteristic of the Romanesque architectural style of this church are the small rounded arch windows in the north and south walls. The most ancient exhibit is the chalice-shaped baptismal font. The tabletop from the altar, featuring a hollow meant to house relics, and the tympanum both stem from the twelfth-century. The Baroque altar piece, the pulpit and the crucifix are all from the sixteenth-century. The stalls and the framed portrait of the naive Luther (1657) were refurbished in 1979. The piscina and the sacrarium can still be found in the apse.

GIEBICHENSTEIN CASTLE – KUNSTHOCHSCHULE HALLE

The earliest record of Giebichenstein Castle dates back to 961. The castle served as the seat of government for the archbishops of Magdeburg for some time and even as their main residence until the construction of Castle Moritzburg in Halle was completed in 1503. Large segments of the complex were destroyed during the Thirty Years" War (1636). Since 1966 the site has served as an open-air museum. Additional parts of the historic wall were excavated while the site was undergoing extensive renovation during the 1990s.

As a result, sections of the old Curtain wall, the foundations of the living quarters – including a residential tower with wall which that were between 12 and 15 feet thick – and of the castle church, a courtyard featuring original medieval paving, and a barrel-vault have all been brought into view. The gate tower, a watch tower dating to the twelfth-century, provides an unforgettable view of the Saale valley. The lower castle has been home to the Halle-Giebichenstein Castle Academy of Art and Design since 1921.

MARTIN-LUTHER-UNIVERSITÄT HALLE-WITTENBERG

The institution today known as Martin-Luther-Universität (MLU) came into existence when two older universities merged. One had been founded in Wittenberg in 1502, the other in Halle in 1694. Both universities had varied histories filled with highs and lows. Martin Luther and Philipp Melanchthon both taught in Wittenberg. Their combined presence and legacy transformed the city and its university into the spiritual centre of the Protestant Reformation.

Around 1700, the jurist Christian Thomasius and the philosopher Christian Wolff turned the university at Halle into the epicentre of the German Enlightenment. Napoleon had Wittenberg University closed on the spot in 1813. As a consequence of the territorial reorganisation brought about by the Napoleonic Wars, the two universities were united in Halle in 1817. This peculiar history is represented symbolically in the form of the dual seal which serves as the current logo of Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg.

Over time, the university continued to grow steadily, slowly but surely expanding across the entire city centre. Many of departments are housed in old mansions or in other historic buildings. Of course, a large number of the buildings pertaining to the university have either been newly erected or renovated extensively. Many departments and clinics have been refurbished and now feature state-of-the-art workspaces and equipment. Nearly 20,000 students are enroled at MLU, some 1,500 hailing from abroad. University students characterise the city’s landscape, be it in one of the narrow alleys which appear so harmonious or in one of the neighborhoods housing university facilities. MLU offers a nearly incalculable number of courses of study. The main academic disciplines – social science, the humanities, natural science and medicine – are organised into individual faculties.

STATE MUSEUM OF PREHISTORY

The State Museum of Prehistory ("Landesmuseum für Vorgeschichte") in Halle is among the most important museums for archaeology in Central Europe and is known throughout the world as the home of the Nebra Sky Disc. An integral part of Saxony-Anhalt’s cultural heritage preservation scheme, the museum houses one of the most extensive and significant collections of archaeological treasures in all of Germany.

The building containing the museum was erected between 1911 and 1913, based on the design of Wilhelm Kreis. The collection as a whole is quite substantial, containing more than 10 million artefacts. Some of these are known and celebrated throughout Europe. Others have attained fame the world over. The exceptionally fascinating archaeological finds on display are arranged in chronological order, from the Stone Age all the way up to the early Roman Empire. The permanent exhibition presents a realistic depiction of life during the Stone and Bronze Ages, with wild cave lions, formidable mammoths, contemplative Neanderthals, shamans, tombs and royal burial sites.

To accompany the permanent exhibition, the state museum features a changing line-up of special exhibitions as well. On such exhibition ran at the State Museum of Prehistory in Halle between 31 October 2008 and 26 April 2009— the massive exposition of newly discovered archaeological evidence pertaining to Luther’s family, entitled "Finding Luther – Archaeologists on the trail of the Reformer" ("Fundsache Luther – Archäologen auf den Spuren des Reformators"). The show joined with numerous other events to mark the opening of the Luther Decade in Saxony-Anhalt (2008 -2017).

Further information on current permanent and special exhibitions can be found here!

MARIENBIBLIOTHEK

The Marienbibliothek is the oldest and largest Protestant church library in Germany, which was continuously open to the public. In the backyard at Marktkirche 1 hides the two-storey building.

Sebastian Boetius, pastor of St. Mary's Church, today's market church "Our Lady", founded the library in 1552 and initially bought some books from a donation. Through the following acquisitions and donations, this initial stock was quickly expanded extensively. The Marienbibliothek was also used by students and professors of the newly founded university. Until the founding of the University Library Halle in 1696, the Marienbibliothek was also the only public book collection in the city of Halle.

Today, the collection comprises about 30,000 volumes from the period between the 15th and 18th centuries. In addition to 600 incunabula (prints from the period before 1500), there are works of all fields of knowledge and extensive collections of pamphlets from the 16th and 17th centuries. Of particular interest are certainly the Luther Bibles with manuscript entries of the Reformer.

The library is like a movie set. On three space-saving floors, the shelves are full of thick leather bands from the past. Using cast-iron lintels and iron grates, intermediate floors were pulled in and a French magazine system was built. Here and there could also hide so many treasure. The cataloging is not yet complete.

In the entrance area of the library hangs a mural. It is the enlarged reproduction of an oil painting from the year 1680 and shows the earliest known view of the Marienbibliothek. In addition to the Luther Bibles, there are many other interesting books on the Reformer and his work. Writings, collected works, correspondence and much more.

Opening Times

The Marienbibliothek will be closed on the following days: 05.02.2018 until 11.02.2018.
