- One of the most traditional foundations in Germany -
While the United Cathedral Foundations in their present form as a non-profit foundation under public law date back to 1930,
the roots of the Naumburg and Merseburg cathedral chapters reach back to 1,000 years ago.
The United Cathedral Chapter is the supervisory body above a joint administration of the cathedrals in Naumburg and Merseburg as well as the collegiate library in Zeitz and other properties.
Today, the preservation of the rich cultural heritage and the promotion of current social achievements are the guiding principles of the foundation's work.
