Speyer

Speyer Dom // Ranked as the largest preserved Romanesque church in Europe. In the 1020s (the exact year cannot be determined) Konrad II started construction with the goal of building the biggest church of his era. After 30 years of construction, the Lord’s newest house was dedicated in 1061. With this monumental construction in what was then the very small city of Speyer, the ruler wanted to demonstrate his religion-political claim to power against the papacy. (Speyer, Germany)
