During various historical periods, faith played a vital role for individuals in a wide range of locations as documented by copious evidence. The castle and town of Allstedt for example provide an authentic illustration of the life and times of Thomas Müntzer. The mysterious “Haingott” [god of the grove] at the Neuenburg in Freyburg will transport visitors into prehistoric worlds of faith. In addition, this castle is irrevocably linked with St Elisabeth of Thuringia. You will encounter Prince George III of Anhalt within the exciting worlds of religion, society and politics in the “Merseburg Experiment”. In Castle Querfurt, Saint Bruno and Prince Christian of Wettin are depicted as “fellow believers”. The exhibition “Tempestuous dynasties” in Weißenfels will inform you about the problematic “relationship of faith” between August the Strong and Duke Christian and in the town of Zeitz, the focus is on Julius Pflug, the last bishop of Naumburg and pioneer of the ecumenical movement.
All these locations in buildings, rooms and squares have been shaped by actual events of history, giving them a unique atmosphere.
“Faith. Locations. Evidence” invites you to undertake an exceptional “journey of faith” full of discovery, questions and contemplation.
