Long Description:
"Der Erfurter Dom (früher auch Marienkirche oder Propsteikirche Beatae Mariae Virginis genannt) ist der wichtigste und älteste Kirchenbau in Erfurt. Er diente nur kurze Zeit in der Mitte des 8. Jahrhunderts als Bischofssitz und war das gesamte Mittelalter über bis in das frühe 19. Jahrhundert hinein Sitz des Kollegiatstifts St. Marien. Seit 1994 ist er wieder Kathedrale des neugeschaffenen Bistums Erfurt und Sitz des Domkapitels." Wikipedia (visit link)
