The history of German printing is on display in our Religious Change & Print exhibition. We invite you to join us for this special tour, during which we will examine numerous books printed in Germany, including a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible; a polemical pamphlet containing a woodcut portrait of its author, Martin Luther; and several German musical works that have been recorded for this exhibition with the generous support of the German Consulate.

This tour is part of Religious Change, 1450 - 1700, a multidisciplinary project exploring how religion and print made the medieval world modern. The project is generously supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
