Over the second half of the 16th century, Basel gradually developed ecclesiastical institutions and traditions for the appointment and supervision of its clergy. Pastors of the third and fourth generations were more homogeneous than previous generations, which made the task of oversight easier. A clearly identifiable career path developed for both rural and urban clergy. An ecclesiastical hierarchy of sorts developed, subordinating the rural to the urban church, and the city’s senior pastors, working with representatives of the Senate, assumed de facto responsibility for the running of the church.
