The Protestant Augustinian monastery (1300) in Erfurt, a Lutheran site famous both in Germany and around the world, is a remarkable example of medieval religious architecture. Martin Luther lived, prayed and worked here as a monk from 17 July 1505 to autumn 1511. Original documents from this period are on permanent display in the Bible-Monastery-Luther exhibition. Today the Augustinian monastery is a conference centre and cultural forum.
