Historical Timeline of Luther Monument

Description of Luther Monument

The monument is dominated by a larger-than-life statue of a standing Luther. In one hand he cradles a Bible; in the other he roughly clutches his papal bull of excommunication. The four sides of the pedestal bear bas-reliefs depicting idealized scenes from Martin Luther's life: (1) Luther searching the Scriptures; (2) Luther discussing theology with his close friend Philipp Melanchthon; (3) Luther at home, singing hymns with his family; and (4) The triumph of truth (representing by an angel) over the devil.
