Chapter Summary

On December 2, 1538 the Cathedral of St. Paul was reconsecrated by reverend Lord John Bischoping. Once the churches in the city were repaired, and chant books were reprinted at the expense of main clergy, divine worship and all the Catholic ceremonies were revived with unparalleled zeal and acclaim on the part of the burghers, and now that a constitution had been established by the prince, every individual returned to his duties and business activities. It was thought that everything was pacified, and all soldiers were discharged, but contrary to everyone’s hope and expectation, around the Sunday “Cantate” in the year 1538, the brothers George, Christopher and Anthony of Oldenburg and with them Duke William of Brunswick and Count Otto of Tecklenburg, gathered a large band of soldiers and waged an undeclared war against the diocese of Münster.
