WITTENBERG - For the first time, the German public will be offered a glimpse into another side of 16th Century Protestant religious leader Martin Luther - his kitchen, officials said Tuesday.

On 12 September the town of Wittenberg will open the kitchen of Luther's house to the public. It was only in July, during repair work on the outside of the house, that remnants of the kitchen were first discovered.

Since then, archaeologists and scholars have been studying the site, which will now be open to the public.

The 12 September is the "Day of Open Monuments" throughout Germany, when historical sites are opened to the public.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) launched what became known as the Reformation when, as a Catholic priest incensed by corruption and papal abuses in the Church, nailed his "Ninety-Five Theses" to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg on 31 October 31 1517.
