Effects of the Reformation

Luther never ends: in the late 19th century, when urban populations were rapidly increasing, many newly built churches in Saxony and elsewhere in Germany were given the name of the Reformer. Many new monuments to Luther were made, among them the one in front of the Dresden (Church of Our Lady, which fell from its pedestal during the war and was re-erected. On Martin Luther’s 400th birthday in 1883, the first common hymnal for all regions of Saxony was published. The tremendous influence on architecture, art and music that emanated from the Reformation, was once again made very clear. It lives to this day.
