This chapter examines Wittenberg as a Lutheran pilgrimage site. The various Lutheran organizations promoting and developing the town as a pilgrimage site are discussed, along with tensions between these groups. The chapter argues that sacred quality of Wittenberg is a kind of void or blank slate, on which various groups inscribe meaning and significance. As a pilgrimage site, Wittenberg often occasions conflict and tension between the various Lutheran groups.
