Marvel at outstanding documents of the Reformation in the Thuringian University and State Library (ThULB) such as the UNESCO Memory of the World "German Mass" (Deutsche Messe) by Martin Luther, experience artistic and scientific events in the university city of Jena. The anniversary highlight "reforms" itself in Jena from 25 to 27 May 2017 with the "Church day on the trail" in Jena/Weimar.
Join us in the celebrations!

An authenticsite of the Reformation in Jena: the Carmelite monastery on Engelplatz

Just in time for the anniversary of the Reformation a gem has arisen in Jena. 500 years ago the Carmelite monastery stood below Engelplatz. It was closed following its secularisation and Saxon Elector John Frederick set up a printing works where the Jena version of Luther’s works was printed. Historians and theologians attach greater importance to it than the Wittenberg Bible, as it embodies "pure Lutheranism". The entire grounds are now an idyllic location to pause and refl ect in the centre of the city. Visitors can walk through it and experience the former monastery. The two remaining inner rooms are used as exhibition rooms which are accessible during tours. They provide a vivid impression of gothic architecture. Essential parts of the sacristy and chapter house have been preserved. An exhibition consisting of 17 panels tells the story, location and development of the Carmelite monastery in Jena, from the Jena version of Luther’s works and the future of the grounds.
