The Cathedral of St Peter in Bautzen, Germany was once the centre of a powerful and fortified town. It can be considered as one of the engines for the Christianisation of the mainly Sorb population in Lusatia, a region that is today divided between Germany and Poland.

The Cathedral withstood a history of wars, different occupations and the Reformation. Whereas most German churches located in areas ruled by Lutheran noble families were turned into Lutheran churches, the Catholic and the Lutheran communities of Bautzen agreed on sharing the church.

For almost 500 years, the church has been a simultaneum church: Co-Cathedral for the Catholics and Main Church for the Lutherans.
