The 800th wedding anniversary of St. Elizabeth of Thuringia

"But now you are light. Elisabeth" is the title of the anniversary year 2021 in the Preacher church of the Thuringian Museum Eisenach with top-class special exhibitions, projects and concerts. 800 years ago - 1221 - the Thuringian Landgrave Ludwig IV married the Hungarian king's daughter Elisabeth in the church of St. Georgen. The Preacher church is an important place of reception for Elisabeth, who was canonized in 1235, the Hungarian king's daughter and later Landgrave of Thuringia.
