At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Historical site.

Legend has it that when Charlemagne discovered the tombs of martyrs Felix and Regula, he a church built on this site, this was the Monastery of the Canons of Zürich. The construction of the current building began around 1100.

During the first half of the sixteenth century, the Grossmünster (current name of the cathedral of Zurich) was the starting point for the Swiss-German Reformation led by Huldrych Zwingli and Heinrich Bullinger. The theological school attached to the monastery was the foundation upon which the University of Zurich was built.
