Heidelberg, Luther and the Reformation

  • Martin Luther  ©Lucas Cranach
  • Luthertafel auf dem Uniplatz ©Heidelberg Marketing GmbH
  • Alte Universität ©Heidelberg Marketing GmbH

Heidelberg was a milestone leading up to the Reformation. Luther‘s journey to Heidelberg in 1518 – his first theological public appearance outside Wittenberg after nailing his 95 theses to the door in October 1517 – was not without its dangers. At the invitation of the monks of the Augustine order, he led the thesis defense in Heidelberg in April 1518 in the local Augustine cloister. It was here that he defended the basic ideas of his new theology whereby man is justified through faith in the divine grace of the Lord – not just through good deeds. The walk through the Old Town follows Luther’s footsteps and uncovers the evidence of the Reformation in the city.
