The monumental ensemble of St. Mary's Cathedral and the Church of St. Severus is an impressive sight for visitors. The twin churches on Cathedral Hill are a unique piece of architectural heritage in Europe. They date from the year 742 and are open to the public. The central tower of the Cathedral houses the "Gloriosa", the world's largest medieval free-swinging bell. In 1507, Luther was ordained as a priest in Erfurt Cathedral. The Church of St. Severus, a fivenaved early Gothic hall church, was a collegiate church for the regular canons of St. Augustine during the 12th century. Today along with the cathedral, it is Erfurt's most famous landmark.
