The countdown is running!

The time will come in just a week. Then we will show the Wiedmann Bible in its complete length in Stuttgart - Bad Cannstatt.


A celebration and many helpers


What a fantastic response! There are already over 500! Helpers registered for participation in the celebration of the 500th day of the Reformation on October 31 and the presentation of the Bible in Bad Cannstatt. So that all participants can also view the Wiedmann Bible over its length of 1517 meters, we work in two shifts and are therefore still looking for volunteers for the hours 12.00-13.00 and 13.00-14.00. Are you / you are more spontaneous? No problem. The festive day starts at 10 a.m. with a service in the town church. The meeting point for spontaneous and registered first shift helpers is around 11.30 a.m. at the booth in front of the church. Here, all participants will receive a surprise gift from us and find out where they will be in the Wiedmann Bible. Those who take part from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., please come to the registration at 12.30 p.m. At 2 p.m. we conclude the Bible presentation with the signing of an ecumenical framework agreement between the Evangelical parishes of Stadtkirche, Steig and Münster and the Catholic parish of St. Martin on the market square. Food and drinks are provided on site. Registrations are possible until October 29th, 2017 HERE or directly by email and of course on October 31st on site.


A look back and a lot of visitors


280,000 visitors came to the Frankfurt Book Fair in October - 2,000 more than in the previous year. There were lots of great events together with the German Bible Society. There were among others the fashion designer Harald Glööckler, who even spontaneously signed one of the ART editions, the designer of the limited edition, Manfred Rieker, and my wife, Barbara Wiedmann. We all had great fun meeting old and new friends.


An opening and ongoing exhibitions


They were pretty good friends - the artist Willy Wiedmann and actor Walter Schultheiß, who later even became his student. It was also he who brought the exhibition of the Wiedmann Bible and other works by Wiedmann to the Martinskirche in Wildberg and the Volksbank Herrenberg-Nagold-Rottenburg eG. The opening ceremony took place on October 20th. In conversation with curator Dr. He told Springer about the many experiences he had with his artist friend.
