Paul Falk subjects the Prussian clergy to State control (51 words)

Historical Context Note

  • Editors


In the May Laws, championed by Prussian minister of public worship Paul Falk, responsibility for the training and appointment of clergy is transferred to the State. This leads to the closure of almost half the country's seminaries in the next five years, and leaves many Catholics without regular local spiritual support.
