This article could use a map of Switzerland, showing the boundaries of 1600 (yes, after Berne had conquered the Vaud), showing rivers and main cities. The map should show the spread of Protestantism ca. 1600, identifying Protestant regions, Catholic regions, and mixed regions where each commune decided on its own. I don't have the skills or tools to do this myself; could someone help out, please? Thank you. Lupo 22:19, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
Inserted a translated version of my map of the religious divisions of Switzerland 1536. Complaints and wishes?Sidonius 16:53, 16 September 2006 (UTC)
The second map showing the confessions in Switzerland during the 18th century after the counter-reformation is now online as well. The borders refer to the confederacy of the ancien regime. The distribution of the religions changed only after 1847 because of the industrialization - people moved around more often and after the foundation of modern Switzerland the right of domicil was introduced. Thus there was significant change in the confessional landscape in industrialized regions. In the 20th century immigration of catholic workers from Italy was also a reason why the majority changed again in favor of catholicism.Sidonius 06:57, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
Why does the "First war of Kappel" wikipedia article mention a catholic priest being executed in Thurgau in 1528(in adition to the protestant pastor executed in 1529) before the war broke out and this article does not(in the religious war section)? Isn't this a bit POV?
