This chantry chapel was built in 1368 by Konrad Wynmann, one of the city fathers. It was destroyed, but rebuilt in 1456 under the auspices of Georg Z?lsdorf. It was from here that on November 28th, 1518, Martin Luther appealed to Pope Leo X to set up a council to hear the case aginst [sic] him as a heretic. Up until 1772 the chapel was used for funeral services prior to burial in the churchyard. From 1913 to 1928 the chapel housed the Wittenberg Museum of Local History. Today the Corpus Christi Chapel is used regularly by the congregation of the [T]own [C]hurch for prayer.
