A solid castle is our God

~ This text-line of the well-known psalm is emblazoned in large letters on the church tower of the Wittenberg castle church. The author, the reformer Martin Luther, In the autumn of 1508 the Augustinian monk came to Wittenberg to undertake a theological studies. In 1511 he took over the chair of the Lectura in Biblia at Wittenberg University and kept him until his life. In October, 1517 Luther presented his famous 95 theses "Propositiones wider das Ablas". According to Philipp Melanchthon, on 31 October, he had proposed these theses on the main portal of the Schlosskirche in Wittenberg.

Wittenberg was at that time the capital of the Saxon cure circle and once ducal and electoral residence of Sachsen-Wittenberg. The Saxon Elector Frederick the Wise had erected a new representative castle in Wittenberg from 1490, and designed the castle church as the third wing. The new building lasted over 20 years and was rebuilt on the foundations of the original castle. One of the most impressive Renaissance buildings that arose during Wittenberg's 16th century.
