Ein minuten bitte

Living in the UK means I get to see lots of churches and cathedrals, both at home and across Europe. But this one is undoubtedly the most spectacular of the lot ... which might be part of the reason why Martin Luther ended up famously saying "Ein minuten bitte" (as paraphrased by Eddie Izzard)?

Eddie Izzard: Martin Luther was a German fellow who pinned a note on a church door that said, "Hang on a minute!" Actually, he was German so, "Ein minuten bitte!"
