Sankt Severin Kirche Chancel Church of St. Severin
Cioffi, Paul L., 1928-2004
Within the medieval city wall of Cologne stand twelve Romanesque churches. Despite the devastation suffered during World War II, all of the churches have been restored. They are Gross Sankt Martin, Sankt Andreas, Sankt Aposteln, Sankt Cäcilien, Sankt Georg, Sankt Gereon, Sankt Kunibert, Sankt Maria im Kapitol, Sankt Maria Lyskirchen, Sankt Pantaleon, Sankt Severin and Sankt Ursula. Though the exterior of Sankt Severin is Gothic, its Romanesque chancel remains intact. As a whole, the current structure dates from the 13th to the 15th C. Sankt Severin is built on an ancient burial ground sanctuary that dates to the 4th C.
