    The Cologne Cathedral (Official Site)

    The Cologne Cathedral or the Der Kölner Dom (off. Hohe Domkirche St. Peter und Maria )

    The old cathedral in 1170

    The place in which the cathedral is situated today has been since late roman times the place where the first christians assembled in Cologne. Several churches- each one in turn larger than its predecessors- have been built on this site near the city walls. The first of these churches of which we know what it looked like was the Carolingian cathedral finished in 870. It had on each end of the nave a transept as well as a choir.The altar to the east was consecrated to Maria and the western altar was consecrated to St. Peter. Under the archbishop Bruno a northern and a southern side aisle were added to the nave. This cathedral stood until the 13th century and underwent only small changes during this time. The picture shows the cathedral as well as the St.Maria ad gradus church situated towards the east of the cathedral.

    As goes the history about the Cathedral of Cologne around 1170. Here is the official site of the Cathedral. Click on the flags to switch from German to English (and of course back again).
