Encyclopedia > Cathedral of St. Hedwig

St. Hedwig's Cathedral is a cathedral that is located in Berlin, Germany that was built in the 18th century.

The cathedral of St. Hedwig was built by Frederick the Great, King of Prussia. The king's friend, Ignacy Krasicki, Bishop of Warmia (later Archbishop of Gniezno), officiated at the opening of the cathedral in 1773. The church was named after the patron saint of Silesia and Brandenburg, St. Hedwig of Andechs, and commemorated the arrival of Catholic Silesians immigrating to Brandenburg and Berlin.
