Sopron Lutheran Collections

The history of the Lutheran congregation in Sopron, which dates back more than 450 years, coincides with the appearance of Reformation in Hungary. This centuries-old story is conveyed to those interested by the permanent exhibition of the Lutheran Museum in Sopron, which reopened in 2015, on the ground floor of the church building behind the Lutheran church.

The history of the life of the Sopron congregation is presented to visitors in the light of paintings, liturgical objects, relics, manuscripts, books and engravings. The reception room presents the interior of a 20th-century rectory, inviting visitors as guests. In the unique portrait gallery of the pastors of the congregation, the pastors working from the 17th to the 20th century for the Lutherans in Sopron can be seen. The Lutheran Archives of Sopron has been preserving documents since the middle of the 16th century. The Lutheran Library in Sopron welcomes researchers with its more than six thousand copies including manuscript bibles and standard works in the field of theology.
