The Memorial Church (Gedächtniskirche der Protestation) in the German town of Speyer was built to commemorate the protest at Parliament carried out by the Protestant states of the Holy Roman Empire.

Today it is the main church of the Protestant diocese (Landeskirche) of Palatine.

The Memorial Church was built between 1893 and 1904 in the Gothic revival style following plans by the German architects Julius Flügge and Karl Nordmann. Particularly worth viewing are the stained glass windows. In the decorative programme of the rose window, the protest is linked with events from the Old and New Testaments.
