Uncertain Times: Martin Luther’s Remedies for the Soul

Uncertain Times: Martin Luther’s Remedies for the Soul focuses on the ways in which Martin Luther, the 16th-century German religious reformer, comforted the distressed souls of his contemporaries by approaching them as a father, a husband, and a friend—rather than as a priest or theologian. This exhibition, curated by Zanvyl Krieger Fellow Yu Na Han, provides insight into Luther’s world, friendships, and family. Approximately 20 works will be on view, ranging from a simple beer cup to a mesmerizing rendering of the Lutheran orb and cross composed entirely of microscopic hand-lettered prayers. The Walters presents this one-gallery exhibition during the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.
