This paper aims to identify the circumstances in which bishops of Prague were appointed (from the 970s to the 1030s), particularly the first bishop Dietmar, in the context of the incorporation of the Bohemian Church into the Church of the Holy Roman Empire and the subordination to the Archbishop of Mainz. There has been an ongoing debate in current historiography over who selected candidates for the position of bishops: the Bohemian duke or the German ruler, who granted investiture.
