The church was completed in 1304. At the turn of the 15th century, the church underwent comprehensive rebuilding. During the 16th and 17th centuries the church was used by both Catholics and Protestants. With the establishment of the Episcopal See of Rožňava on 13 March 1776, the church became the cathedral of the new diocese. As a result, extensive interior modifications were made. I.e., the church was originally built without a tower, which was added in the 19th century.
