Description The beginnings of the bishopric of Prague have been among the questions of eternal recurrence for years. This study offers a new perspective on the conditions that influenced the foundation of the bishopric. It seems that Prague's subordination to Mainz was a pragmatic concession with which Otto II wanted to settle the strained relations with the Metropolitan of Mainz, who lost part of his revenues and the missionary space behind the eastern bank of the Elbe by founding a new archbishopric in Magdeburg. Last but not least, the archbishop of Mainz - if only because he was the primas Germanie - automatically drew the bishop of Prague into what was happening on the imperial soil.
