The LEUCOREA is the oldest part of the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and was founded more than 500 years ago in 1502. Many important scholars from different academic faculties can be named, but particularly Martin Luther, starting in 1512, had the greatest effect. Wittenberg and the LEUCOREA became a place of world history when Luther, with his 95 theses on indulgences in 1517, ushered in the Reformation and thus prompted repercussions lasting to the present.
