Luther Bible 1551 illustrations go live online
26 October 2017

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, the full set of hand-coloured images from the Löhe Memorial Library’s 1551 edition of the Luther Bible has been prepared as a digital resource available for study by scholars and interested Lutherans around the world.

You can view the images via the library website. A limited number of images are available now. The remainder will be added progressively.

For researchers, students and organisations who wish to have access to a high resolution version of one or more images without the protective watermark, access for academic non-commercial purposes is available by filling out an application form and on payment of a small copyright fee.
