“We need to bring different faiths together to live in peace.” For the theologian and pastor Margot Käßmann, Luther’s words are today more relevant than ever.
Martin Luther was born in Eisleben and he also died here. What today appears to be a tranquil central German town was a significant location in the life of the reformer.

When he pinned his 95 theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg 500 years ago, Martin Luther didn't just spark a church reformation, but a global movement. An exhibition in Berlin examines his wider impact.
Protestantism is mostly a group of niche movements in predominantly Catholic Latin America. The 500th anniversary of the Reformation is an opportunity for Christianity's various sects to find new recognition.
