Fulda's Baroque Church of the Holy Spirit, built between 1729 and 1733, is a hospital church, replacing its 13th-century Gothic predecessor. Built in the 4th century AD. The high altar is dedicated to the Holy Spirit, the altar on the right is dedicated to Margaret, patron saint of Pisidia, and the altar on the left is dedicated to St. Joseph. The church is thought to be a meeting place for 32 poor people living in affiliated hospitals. The hospital's first pastor was John Adam Henkel. In 1803, the magistrate of Fulda directed the Marian Sorority, which held its last general meeting at the university church on Good Friday in 1803. The spiritual church serves as a meeting place, hence the ancient name Sodalitätskirche. Michael Henkel was an organist at Sodalität until 1851.
