Archbishop Willibert

Period of office 870-889

Archbishop Willibert was chosen from the circle of clerics associated with Cologne Cathedral, which shows how important the Cathedral Chapter was at that time. Willibert's first act in 870 was the consecration of the "Old Cathedral" in Cologne. In 887 he held the first provincial synod in Cologne. The plundering expeditions of the Normans occurred during his time in office, and caused great damage to the province. Willibert was the first Archbishop to be buried in the Cathedral.
