About the exhibiton

On October 31st 1517, Luther was said to have nailed 95 theses to the door of the castle chapel in Wittenberg as a protest against abuses in the Catholic Church. Our exhibition – key for Styria – is dedicated to the reverberations through the ages of his hammer blows, in this anniversary year, 2017.

Part of the show is an ‘antenna system’ on the outskirts of Graz, which shows the historical impact of the Reformation in those places where it took place.
