- November 20 : At the instigation of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria , 22 Swabian imperial cities, including Augsburg , Ulm , Reutlingen and Heilbronn , join forces to form the Swabian League of Cities . The objective is to secure the imperial city freedoms. The alliance is thus also directed against the efforts of the respective sovereigns for territorial expansion of Bavaria, Württemberg, Austria and other emerging territorial states.

- Johannes Hake succeeds Nikolaus von Kesselhut , who died on February 11, as Bishop of Verden . As the first bishop to be appointed directly by the Pope in Verden, he must first come to an agreement with the cathedral chapter that has been ignored. Later he transferred the administration of the diocese to his vicar general Gottfried von Werpe and stayed mostly in Avignon.
- April 11th : Pope John XXII. orders the Archbishop of Cologne, Heinrich II. von Virneburg , to check the files of the trial against Nicholas of Strasbourg . Thereupon the proceedings initiated against Nikolaus are lifted.
- May 23 : Johannes I. Pfefferhard , Bishop of Chur, dies in the captivity of the Barons von Grünenberg , who captured him as a supporter of Emperor Ludwig of Bavaria , who was an enemy of the Pope, on the way back from his episcopal ordination in Avignon last year. Pfefferhard's successor as Bishop of Chur is Ulrich von Lenzburg .
- August 3rd : Otto II von Woldenberg dies. The majority of the cathedral chapter elects the Guelph Heinrich III as his successor as Bishop of Hildesheim . from Braunschweig-Lüneburg . However, its confirmation has met with considerable difficulties. The administrator of the Archdiocese of Mainz , Baldwin of Luxembourg confirmed the election, Pope Johannes XXII. However, Heinrich von Virneburg has been appointed archbishop, so that Heinrich's archbishop confirmation is doubtful. In addition, Heinrich's predecessor placed the diocese in the hands of the Pope before his death, which makes the choice of the chapter without papal approval in vain. In fact, Pope John XXII determines. Count Erich von Holstein-Schaumburg as bishop. Heinrich does not accept this decision and is therefore subject to the papal ban and interdict . Since the cathedral chapter, the Brunswick dukes and the nobility still stand behind him, he controls large parts of the Hildesheim monastery , such as the nearby dam city . The influence of his competitor is essentially limited to the city of Hildesheim and the monasteries.
- The plague breaks out in the Empire of China . This point is the beginning of a pandemic that will invade Europe as the Black Death in 1347 and only temporarily ebb away in 1351 .
