In Switzerland, the second civil war of religion is ended by the
Peace of Kappel. This allows each canton and each district to have

settlement is that the Swiss Confederation becomes divided into
Protestant areas (notably Zurich, Berne, Geneva and Basle) and
Catholic ones (notably Lucerne, Zug and Freiburg).
