The centrally depicted Wartburg is a castle in Eisenach, Thuringia, perhaps best known for the role it played as a refuge for Martin Luther, a seminal figure in the Protestant Reformation. Luther was declared an outlaw by the Emperor Karl V in 1521 and, for his own safety, he was brought to the Wartburg, where he lived incognito for ten months during the years 1521 and 1522, calling himself Junker Jörg (Knight George).
