One thought on “Resources

  1. Dear pilgrims on ‘Luther’s footsteps’,
    as the German responsible for our project of re-enewing the medieval VIA ROMEA from Stade to Rome (Association: Foerderverein “Romweg Abt Albert von Stade e.V.”) in Germany, together with the Italian initiator Giovanni Caselli (Bibbiena / AR) and others,
    I am very interested in your religious project and the way your are running it – by feet and by heart.

    Especially I would like to know if you have planned your route based on any historical documents or reports which prove that Luther really has taken the same way as you show it in internet?
    We are very happy to have an historical manusript-document of about 1260 where
    abbot Albert has written all the possibilities of pilgrim-routes and towns and distances, also of the way back from Rome to Stade, realized in 1236.

    I will be glad to hear from you soon,

    Yours Uwe Schott, Plankstadt near Heidelberg
