Transcript

  1. Catholic v Protestant German states had once shared the Catholic religion but this changed after the Reformation. Germany became divided between Catholic and Protestant.
  2. North v South The religious divide split the German states: • Northern states tended to be Protestant (and support Prussia) • Southern states tended to be Catholic (and support Austria)
  3. Main obstacle? Yes Religion is one of the features that many assign to a nation (along with language, race, etc). Religious divisions could help to keep states separate as undermined the idea of a German nationality/race.
  4. Main obstacle? No Although 30 Years War had religious focus, much less religious division since. Prussia and Austria were rivals because of power – religious differences were incidental rather than a cause.
