Reformation in Naumburg

Luther's Bishop Experiment in Naumburg
Under the motto "Bishop's experiment", Nicolaus von Amsdorf's actors personally guide the guests to the scenes of the Reformation. The main focus is on the appointment of bishops in Naumburg Cathedral by Luther. The history of the almost 1000 year old cathedral city of Naumburg is closely linked to Martin Luther and the Reformation. Luther first preached in 1521 on his way to the Wormser Reichstag in Naumburg. On 18 January 1542, Luther, together with Melanchthon, Spalatin and Nikolaus von Amsdorf, took up quarters at Markt 3 with the widow of the town clerk Ambrosius Dörffer. A memorial plaque commemorates this today. In the evening, one of the most difficult council meetings in the history of the town took place, in which, together with the Elector, they agreed on the appointment of Nikolaus von Amsdorf as bishop. Luther consecrated von Amsdorf as the first Protestant bishop on 20 January 1542 in the east choir of Naumburg Cathedral. With this, Luther not only set a milestone in Naumburg's church history, but also for the strengthening of Protestantism. But Amsdorf had a difficult position, the Catholics did not recognise it - the "Naumburg Beschofsexperiment" had failed. Although Protestant preaching began in the town church of St. Wenceslas in 1526, the Reformation did not finally take hold in Naumburg until 1568. The most formative reformatory personality in Naumburg was Nikolaus Medler. In 1536 he took up the post of Superintendent in the town church of St. Wenceslas and wrote a church and school order, which was approved by Luther and based on the Wittenberg order. Since 1939, a figurative representation of Martin Luther on the medieval pulpit in Naumburg Cathedral has been commemorating this act, which is significant for the history of the Reformation.
