Teaching tool


I believe this was a podium used by Luther to teach his seminars on theology at the University of Wittenberg.

  1. Oh for those good ol' days. Glad I didn't have to listen to him as I have read he was a harsh taskmaster!

    1. I just went over there to look. Seems he had a nice tour of Berlin and around!

  6. Pretty fancy I guess Luther wasn't against the Church spending money on meeting places. :)

    1. Well, I believe this lectern was from the university... but still pretty fancy for a protestant!

  7. I bet that podium was much less grand when Martin Luther preached here. And I didn't think Protestants were into paintings in churches.

  8. It is a bit grander than most classrooms I sat in. Where do they put the coffee pot?
