Grand Duke Marks Reformation Day

Five hundred years and one day ago, on October 31, 1517, German monk Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses on the door of the All Saints' Church in Wittenberg in the Electorate of Saxony in the Holy Roman Empire marking the start of the Reformation. Yesterday, Grand Duke Henri attended a church service con-celebrated by the Protestant Parish of the German language in Luxembourg, the Protestant-Reformed Church in Luxembourg and the Catholic Church at the Cathédrale Notre-Dame to commemorate the event. 

In a slightly funny turn of events, it is actually the Catholic Church of Luxembourg that offers a gallery of visuals of the service.
