Familie und Haushalt
Katharina von Bora, Luther`s wife, was a remarkable woman whose life was as unusual and exiting as the
reformator`s. She was
born of impoverished noble parents in 1499. Later on, at the age of ten, she entered the convent Nimbschen.
Under the influence of Reformation she fled from there to Wittenberg. Katharina von Bora and Martin Luther married in 1552.
Four out of six children who had been born of the couple reached adulthood. Kathy, the "most famous priest`s wife all over the
world", kept house for a big family and was an indispensable companion and adviser to her husband as well. She died in Torgau
in 1552, six yars after Martin Luther`s death.
