abstract

With regard to the special situation in Germany, where Catholics formed a minority in a predominantly Protestant Constitutional Monarchy (which was nevertheless viewed rather favourably by the Roman Curia), the German bishops succeeded in receiving a dispensation from some of the regulations of Pascendi. In their reports, the bishops presented their dioceses in a favourable light and tried to immunize them against further Roman action. A certain tendency towards a minimizing interpretation of the scope of anti-modernism is manifest.
