Church of the Holy Spirit

Local nameHeiliggeistkirche
LocationHeidelberg, Deutschland

The Church of the Holy Spirit is the largest and most notable church in Heidelberg, Germany. The church, located in the marketplace in the old town centre of Heidelberg, was constructed between 1398 and 1515, and planned as the burial place of the Electors of the Palatinate and as a representative church of the Palatinate royal seat. In the Palatine War of Succession, the princely graves of the Electors were destroyed; today only the founder of the church, Elector Ruprecht III, who reigned as King of Germany until his death in 1410, is located in the church. The church was also the location of the founding, and the original repository of, the Bibliotheca Palatina.
