  1. Hi Steve,

    I’ve been listening to your podcast and it is very interesting and informative.
    I am in Saxony for a few weeks and I was wondering if you can recommend about interesting sights related to Martin Luther that I can go to. I am in Leipzig so I can get to just about any place that Luther worked in!

    Thank you for your help and for the great podcast!

      Mr. Gilor,

      Thanks so much for the comments. I am going to forward your email to another listener who was recently in Germany and may have some great suggestions for you. If I were going to Germany anytime soon, I would be visiting Eisleben, Eisenbach, and Wittenberg. Outside Eisenbach, is the Wartberg Castle, where Luther stayed while in protective custody. I certainly be interested in any pictures or thoughts you’d like to share about your experience.

      Thanks for listening, and please tell anyone you think might find the program of any interest about the podcast.

      Happy Listening!
