Chapter Summary

When a violent dispute arose between Count Derek of Winzenburg, who was the eighteenth bishop of the Church of Münster, and the Lord’s Lords, the latter conspired unanimously against the bishop with nobles of the diocese, who are called vassals, and with the citizens of the outlying city. He burned both private and public buildings as well as the churches, hurling into the city burning arrows and javelins that gave off fire, and he razed to the ground the walls that surrounded this open area, which is now called the Lords’ Field. Borchard of Holte repaired the burnt down church and city gates through which there is access to this field at the cardinal points of the compass. At the eastern gate he placed a church to Archangel Michael and at the western one a chapel dedicated to St. George. This chapter provides a description of the churches of Münster.
