Object number 78 in the “A History of the World in 100 Objects” exhibition is a woodcut print from 1617, which was produced to mark the centenary of the Reformation. It shows Martin Luther nailing his 95 point thesis to the door of a church in Wittenberg, Germany. Next year will mark the 500th anniversary of this event which changed the history of the world.
