Cathedral archive

Today's cathedral archive dates back to the founding of the constituted cathedral congregation in 1810. The main focus of the new cathedral archive is, apart from the church books, from 1900/1920, the administration of the cathedral property from about 1810, the accounting since 1800, construction files of the cathedral and the cathedral's own buildings and minutes of various cathedral committees, such as the cathedral's builders. The holdings of personnel files are insignificant; these files are essentially kept in the BEK archive. Worth mentioning is the plan archive with plans of the construction measures on the cathedral and other buildings from 1840 to the recent present; it is currently being processed.

The late medieval and modern (16th-18th centuries) archives, as far as they were located in Bremen, were taken away by the Swedes in 1648. The written legacy of the so-called Swedish period (1648 - 1713) was then kept in Stade as the capital of the Swedish duchies of Bremen and Verden, as well as that of the Danish (until 1719) and Electoral Hanoverian periods (until 1803). In Bremen, a new cathedral archive was created as a reflex to the government archive in Stade in the structural administration. This archive fell to Bremen in 1803 and came to the Bremen State Archives, where it can be found under the seal 2-T.3. Part of the holdings of the medieval cathedral archives found their way to Hanover via Stade, where a large part of them were burnt during the last war.
