Image Title: Elector and Luther before the Cross

Description: Elector John Frederick of Saxony (r.1532-1547) kneels to the left of the cross and Martin Luther (1483-1546) to the right. Likely designed by Lucas Cranach the Younger (1515-1586), this image was often used on the title pages of Luther's translation of the Bible (first in 1546) and of Luther's collected works.
