14 Dec 2016

24 JUN - 06 NOV

Explore the complex set of relationships between Martin Luther, Johann Sebastian Bach and the Jews in this special exhibition set up at the Bachhaus Museum in Eisenach, Germany.

The exhibition outlines this relationship starting with Luther's own anti-Semitism, it's effects on the Protestant Church and the role of Bach's music:

From Luther's infamous anti-Jewish writings on the question of anti-Semitism in Bach's Passions, to the rediscovery of Bach's music in bourgeoisie Jewish circles during the Enlightenment and Romanticism.
