Photographer's Note

Wittemberg (which received name of Lutherstadt at the time of the democratic Republic) is the city in which Martin Luther launched the Reform.

It is on the door of the church of this city that Luther posted on October 31 1517 its "95 theses".

One of the reformed principles which will rise from the polemic against the Roman Church will be: "the Bible only" (Sola scriptura). It is accordingly that I photographed this small child (or angel or seraph) carrying the Bible.
