The former diocese of Minden (799-1648) has a rich history. Many of the possible 60 bishops had a great ecclesiastical and political influence and were in close contact with the German emperors and kings. From these contacts many riches and treasures are halted.
Often they grew out of donations and foundations and they often rely on the promotion of goldsmithing in their own country. Many treasures have been lost in the course of history through wars, robbery, conflagrations or through being switched on. Above all, the devastating mark of Minden Cathedral in 1062 must have much more. Many must also come from the pre-reformable period, so that many treasures are preserved, so that the Minden Cathedral treasury has made a name for itself as a museum with valuable exhibits.
