Vestments of Bishops

List of bishops and archbishops of Cologne

Bishops and Archbishops of Cologne

Bishops of Colonia Agrippina, 88–784

All names before Maternus ('II') are to be approached with considerable scepticism since no contemporary evidence is available. Maternus was present at a council in Rome in 313. The bishops between Severinus and Charentius are also apocryphal. Domitianus was bishop of Maastricht (Mosa Traiectum). The given dates of office before bishop Gunther are also conjectural at best.
