Title
Luther's Living Room: Stove Detail
Caption
Detail of St. Luke the Evangelist on the tiled stove in the Luther family living room, where the conversations recorded by students in "Table Talk" (starting in 1531) took place. It was not until around 1535 that Luther could afford to decorate the living room with the painted walls and tiled stove. When Luther's house was sold to the university in 1564, all the rooms were renovated except this one. It has been shown to visitors as a museum ever since. The stove was restored and the ceiling was painted in 1602.
