Regensburg's new parish church was built between 1519 and 1540 on the remains of a former synagogue in Regensburg's Jewish quarter. The expulsion of the Jews from Regensburg in 1519 made it possible to erect the new church, which was intended to be the centre of a Marian pilgrimage. In 1542, however, Regensburg converted to the Protestant-Lutheran denomination and the city council made the church the first Protestant parish church in the city.
