Luther and Dutch history
22 September 2017
Two exhibitions opened this week in both of which our museum gave objects in loan. For the first, an exhibition on 400 years Luther, the founder of Protestantism, we lend a pipe tamper with depiction of Pope-Devil. This theme illustrates the resistance to the Catholic church that formed the base of the Reformation movement of Luther. The second exhibit is a tobacco pipe with the portrait of William of Orange, founder of the Dutch Republic during the 16th Century, for the exhibition on the highlights of Dutch history. In case you would like to see our objects in their new context: “Luther” is shown in Utrecht until 28 January 2018, “Dutch history” in Open Air Museum Arnhem for the coming years!
