With the present volume, the series Germania Sacra continues its publications from the Archdiocese of Trier. Following St. Paulin (GS New Series 6) and St. Simeon (GS New Series 41), the St. Marien-Stift in Trier-Pfalzel is the third abbey church in Trier. In Trier, the Germania Sacra discovers the oldest Christian monuments in Germany. This becomes evident in the Abbey of St. Maria, which was built within a Roman palatiolum, to which it owes its name. The Roman walls are preserved within the abbey grounds up to a height of 12 metres. The historian Franz-Josef Heyen presents the history of the abbey – from its foundation up to the secularisation, together with an account of its possessions and detailed prosopographic studies of the canons. Thus the volume provides a further reference work for the ecclesiastical history of this region.
