Heiliggeistkirche (Holy Ghost Church)
The gothic Church was erected in the 15th century. It served varied purposes: House of God, burial place to princes, university banquet hall and safekeeping place for the Bibliotheca Palatina. The books were kept in planned galleries, which explains the wide aisles and relatively narrow form of the nave. 
 In the 30 year war, the church was booty from Tilly and was a gift to the Pope in 1623. In the late Middle Ages Heidelbberg was pulled under the spell of religious differences and as a result the church was separated by a dividing wall (until 1936) into two halves; one catholic and the other evangelistic.
