In the year 1030, the construction of the Speyer Cathedral began. In 1041, the crypt was consecrated, and in 1063 the cathedral itself was complete and consecrated. Almost a thousand years have passed since then, and the building has undergone violent destructions and been subjected to the wear and tear of time. The cathedral chapter, a council of clerics from the diocese, is first and foremost responsible for the cathedral and its preservation.
