Authentic Luther Location

Martin Luther resided at the Veste Coburg from mid-April to early October 1530. While preparations were being made in Augsburg for the reading of the Augsburg Confesssion before the Imperial Diet, Luther worked untiringly on his new doctrine in Coburg. The work he did at the Veste during this crucial phase of the history of the Reformation is of outstanding importance.
