Luther City Revisits the Reformation

In the “Protestant Rome,” where Luther nailed the Ninety-Five Theses to the door of the castle church, Luther tourism is a key part of the economy.  But less than ten percent of the inhabitants are Protestant after forty-five years of official atheism under Communist East Germany.  Der Spiegel online details how the Church in Germany wants to revitalize the faith in Wittenberg and the surrounding area.
