The Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany in 1949 institutionalized the Catholic and Protestant churches and recognized them as bodies of public law; They had to pay taxes and give religious classes at school – participation was compulsory for all those who profess a religion. Created in 1957, the Protestant diaconal work has organized numerous large-scale structures in the social and medical field, financed by the ecclesiastical tax. The Reformed Order of St. John is very active in the world of emergency medical assistance and old-time care. The Church also funds the “Evangelical Academies” where courses on social problems are held. With the military support of the bohemian noble Albrecht von Wallenstein, who provided Ferdinand II with his army of about 50,000 soldiers to conquer the freedom to plunder every conquered territory, he began to react, and in 1635 the Swedes were defeated. These treaties ended the Thirty Years` War (1618-1648) at the Holy Roman Empire and the 80-year war (1568-1648) between Spain and the Dutch Republic, with Spain formally recognizing the independence of the Dutch Republic. With the arrival of Emperor Ferdinand II as head of state of the Holy Roman Empire in 1619, the religious conflict began to fuel. Religious tensions remained high in the second half of the 16th century. The peace of Augsburg began to dissolve – some converted bishops refused to abandon their episcopate and some of the Habsburgs and other Catholic masters of the Holy Roman Empire and Spain tried to restore the power of Catholicism in the region. This is evident from the Cologne War (1583-1588), during which a conflict occurred when the princely bishop of the city, Gebhard Truchsess von Waldburg, converted to Calvinism. As he was an imperial voter, this could have created a Protestant majority within the college that chose the Holy Roman Emperor, a position that Catholics have always held. In 1925 the National Christian Movement (German Christians) was born, which insisted on a “positive Christianity” – which became the national ideal of German Protestantism.
In 1927, the “German Evangelical Day of the Church” in Konigsberg explained the “close connection between Christianity and Germanism for millennia”; Contrary to this statement, the “Christian-socials” claimed that Christianity and fascism were incompatible. The interim was overthrown in 1552 by the insurrection of the Protestant elector Maurice of Saxony and his allies. During the negotiations in Passau in the summer of 1552, even the Catholic princes had called for a lasting peace, fearing that the religious controversy would never be resolved. However, the emperor was not willing to recognize religious division in Western Christianity as permanent. This document was foretold by the peace of Passau, which in 1552 granted religious freedom to Lutherans after a victory of the Protestant armies. According to the Passau document, Karl only granted peace until the next Reichstag, whose assembly was convened in early 1555. The pietists stressed the importance of emotional reactions in religion and also inner spirituality, prayer and individual sanctification; The main members of this movement were P.J. Spener (1635-1755), A.H. Francke (1653-1727), Count Zinzendorf (1700-1760) and his fraternal community of Moravia.
