Protestantism – 500 Years in the World
For the first time an exhibition will illustrate not only the global diversity and history of Protestantism, but also its potential for engendering conflict between different cultures. ‘The Luther Effect’ tells a global story of effect and counter-effect that begins around 1500 and continues on into the present day. It is depicted using the examples of Germany and Europe 1450–1600, Sweden 1500–1750, North America 1600–1900, Korea 1850–2000 and present-day Tanzania. The Deutsches Historisches Museum is presenting the exhibition in the Martin-Gropius-Bau and bringing together a number of outstanding international loans, many of which have never before been displayed in Germany. Find out more about the ‘Luther Effect’ exhibition from the Deutsche Historisches Museum’s website.
