The topic of the presentation represents the essence of the special exhibitions that have been shown in Torgau since 2012. Three rooms explore the topic “The WORD in pictures. Biblical representations on ceremonial weapons”, “The Saxon Gentlemen at Arms” and “Prince-Electoral Weddings in Torgau” although the content and objects vary compared to the previous exhibitions.
A splendid prince-electoral gown made of Italian gold brocade, precious rapiers and richly decorated firearms present the glittering rule of Prince-Elector Johann Georg. I of Saxony (1585/1611-1656) before our eyes.
