Freising

(frī`zĭng), city (1994 pop. 38,180), Bavaria, S Germany, on the Isar River. Manufactures include electrical machinery, textiles, chemicals, and brewing. Freising was founded in 724 by St. Corbinian, and its bishops held temporal power until the see was secularized in 1802–3. The diocese was restored in 1817, the archbishop of Munich being also bishop of Freising. The city has a Romanesque cathedral (c.1160), with 18th-century baroque additions, and is the site of one of the world's oldest breweries, licensed in 1146.
