After the death of Frederick the Wise on May 5, 1525 his brother John the Constant (b. 1468, ruled 1525–32) dissolves the All Saints’ chapter in October 1525. The collection of relics, gems, and liturgical vestments is secretly taken to Torgau. While the court tailor makes use of the precious fabrics, the goldsmith takes the vessels apart to extract the gold, silver, gems, and pearls. By 1530 the valuable collection of relics is dissolved. Luther is given a drinking glass from it, which was said to be part of the treasures of the landgravess Elisabeth of Thuringia (1207–1231) and which opened the collection of relics in 1509.

Liturgical books, vestments, and vessels are also lavishly decorated: The “Wittenberger Heiltumsbuch” of 1509 describes, and illustrates with woodcuts, more than 116 vessels containing 5,005 relics. This collection of relics is dear to Frederick the Wise, who keeps collecting until 1520 – a total of 19,013 holy objects. However, he also wishes to fill this precious church with church life. Therefore, in 1506 he establishes a cult of St. Mary and a cult of St. Anna. In 1519 the last such foundation is announced.
