Archbishop Pilgrim

Period of office 1021-1036

Archbishop Pilgrim (Piligrinus) was the first Cologne archbishop during the Salic era, a time when the Cologne Archdiocese played an important role. The Archbishops of Cologne were all appointed by the king, and in their capacity as imperial bishops supported his authority and took on political tasks. Archbishop Pilgrim was descended from the Bavarian Aribones. He crowned Gisela, wife of Konrad II, in Cologne. In 1031 he was named Chancellor for Italy. From then on this office remained connected to the archbishop's office in Cologne. Pilgrim built the Church of Holy Apostles in Cologne, where he was also buried.
