Short Note This is a short note

This allowed freedom of worship to Protestant German Princes. The Turkish invasion forces Charles V to agree to the peace of Nuremberg with the German Protestants; the Edict of Augsburg is revoked and no one is to be molested for his religion until a general council should meet. The peace is to be kept secret from the Catholic powers.
