Deals with attempts to impose religious uniformity on the bizarre parish order created by historical accident and custom since the Reformation. This was frozen by the Westphalian peace, and its ethos lasted until 1918. The largest religious denomination in the home parish was favoured, since it owned the parish church. Specific to Germany was the simultaneous usage of a parish church by Lutheran and Catholic and Lutheran and Reformed parishioners.
