The confessional divide between Protestantism and Catholicism was an important factor in the emergence of (language-based) national identities and the European nation-state. These nation-states had to be reconstituted after the Napoleonic wars: New state structures, among them also bi-confessional ones, emerged. The Nation as the ideal foundation of political constitution had to be defined also in relation to religious classifications. Religious legitimation of statehood was confirmed anew in 1815, but was also challenged by modern forms of justification of rule.
