"Slate Tower" is the colloquial name for the Church of St. Thomae in Soest, founded in the 12th century in the course of the establishment of the new Archbishop's Palatinate. The official name Alt St. Thomae of this church is declared a distinction from the nearby former monastery church of New St. Thomae. The crooked tower helmet from Alt St. Thomae takes a special and eccentric place in the silhouette of the Soester church towers. With the expansion of the Romanesque building to the early Gothic hall church in the 13th century, Alt St. Thomae is one of the oldest Gothic church buildings in Germany. Alt St. Thomae is the only church in the immediate vicinity of the urban upheaval in Soest and is also the only one among the soester churches to have a church garden today.
