Melanchthonhaus | Lutherstadt Wittenberg, Germany

Wittenberg Melanchthonhaus late evening

The Melanchthonhaus in Lutherstadt Wittenberg with the broad-tiered gables on the left side is one of numerous world heritage sites in the region. Philipp Melanchthon lived and worked in this townhouse in the 16th century.

You can see Melanchthon as a reformer of the education system in the same way as you see Martin Luther as a reformer of the church. He was, so to say, a humanistic opposite which does not mean that Luther and Melanchthon worked against each other. In contrary, when Luther translated the New Testament, it was Melanchthon who corrected his work.

Get it On Your Wall

Nico Trinkhaus
Sumfinity.com presents the hub for my works. I write about my impressions on my trips and during taking the photos. I try to provide you with insight into my artistic life, but the focus is always with the pictures. It fills me with pride when I see that my photos are sometimes viewed by approximately 150,000 people within 24 hours. I imagine that I can give all those people at least two seconds of pure pleasure. That’s 80 hours of happiness! In a world which is dominated by sad, upsetting and dismaying news, I’m so glad to be able to create a small counterpart.
