Holy Ghost Church (Heiliggeistkirche), Heidelberg

The Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Ghost Church) was built from 1344 to 1441, its tower completed in 1544 and is the largest regional Gothic church. The chancel contained the tombs of the Prince Electors of the Palatinate. Most of the commemorial tablets were destroyed in 1693. Of the originally 54 epitaphs, the only one to remain was the one of Prince Elector Ruprecht II (1352 - 1410). While once shared between Catholics and Protestants, the church now serves only a Protestant congregation.
