Predigerkirche ("Preacher's Church") is a Protestant church in Erfurt, Germany. It is a monastic church to the Dominican friary, Predigerkloster, adjacent to the church. Predigerkirche was originally built by the Dominican Order in the 13th century, when the mystic Meister Eckhart was prior here. The original building was modified in 1340–50, and the bell tower was built between 1447 and 1488. The church only became a Protestant church after the Reformation. Around 1806 Predigerkirche was used as a Prisoner of war camp, which led to damage to the interior and the equipment. Repairs were made around 1826.
