Altenburg Conference

(Colloquy; Interview). Discussion or negotiation, primarily on indulgences, held early in January 1519 bet. K. v. Miltitz* and M. Luther* in the house of G. Spalatin* at the Schlossberg, Altenburg, Ger., in presence of officials of the court of Frederick* III of Saxony. After the discussions Luther agreed to be silent on indulgences, provided his opponent did the same. It was also agreed that the bp. of Salzburg or bp. of Trier should arbitrate the matter.
