The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer was built in the Christian Quarter in 1869.
The Church was commissioned by Prussian Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm, who was given the east half of the Muristan by the Sultan during a visit to Jerusalem in 1869.
The church was built over the Church of St. Mary of the Latins, which had fallen into disrepair. An even earlier church may have stood here from the 5th century. The old cloisters, refectory, and original plan of the medieval church are preserved in the new church.
