Over the centuries the church has had many names: Münster - Stiftskirche - Dom.
From the 13th century onwards, the term Münster was generally used for "large churches". The Gandersheim collegiate church is thus also a minster.
Today, the cathedral is used exclusively to designate episcopal churches. These are sometimes also called cathedrals, because the bishop's throne - the cathedra - has its place there. However, Gandersheim was never a bishopric.
