LTSP?Luther 2017

Dr. Reiner Haseloff

The year 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the beginning of what became known as the Reformation. It has been almost 500 years since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg in what is now Germany. Preparations are already well underway to mark the anniversary, and on Wednesday, May 16, 2012, Dr. Reiner Haseloff, Minister-President and highest ranking elected official of the German state of Saxony-Anhalt visited The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP). Saxony-Anhalt is home to Wittenberg and other sites connected to Luther.(photo of Dr. Reiner Haseloff - Wikimedia Commons. publication quality version)
