Marburg was one of the major pilgrimage centres of Western Christendom. The city has retained its magnificent Gothic cathedral dedicated to Saint Elizabeth, a 13C princess who was canonised in 1235. Since the Reformation, the city's university, a centre of Protestant theology, has made it a Mecca for scholarship and research.
