Overview

The perfect wall calendar for the year you make it happen. The TASCHEN Wall Calendar Luther Bible 2004 features 12 big and beautiful reproductions, an elegant layout for the days of the month, and all official holidays for your country. Martin Luther's Bible, first printed in 1534, was not only the first German publication of the Bible but also a major event in the history of Christianity. It made the Bible accessible to laypeople for the first time in history and gave life to a new religion: Protestantism. This calendar features amazingly beautiful reproductions of Lucas Cranach's woodcuts from the Luther Bible. Cranach created fine, valued engravings and woodcuts as well as paintings. He designed woodcuts for Luther's translation of the New Testament; painted altarpieces for Lutheran churches; and painted, engraved, and made woodcut portraits of Protestant Reformers and princes.
