As early as around the year 1000, Count Eido von Rochlitz had a first parish church built on the site of today’s cathedral. Some parts of the church are still preserved from this time. After the Reformation, the cathedral became Germany’s first simultaneous church (Roman Catholic and Lutheran) in 1524. A contract stipulated that the choir was for Catholic services and the nave for Protestant services. The border ran along the rood screen.
