Archbishop Heinrich II. von Virneburg

Period of office 1304-1332

Archbishop Heinrich II, Count von Virneburg came to the Archbishop’s seat after a disputed election and a rather long trial period. His pontificate was marked by intense legislative activity, and by his struggle against heresy and heretics. His most prominent victim was the Dominican mystic Master Eckhart. Heinrich consecrated the choir of the Cathedral on September 27, 1322.
