This is where Melchior Lotter lived. He was a key figure in the dissemination of Luther’s ideas: between 1518 and 1520 alone, more than 40 of Luther’s writings were printed in his workshop. During the Leipzig Disputation, Martin Luther, Philipp Melanchthon and Andreas Bodenstein (known as Karlstadt) stayed in this house.
