Abstract

The Raetian Confession of 1552/53 took shape during the Reformation in the context of Italian emigration to Grisons. The synod was obliged to write a binding order due to debates with the Italian non-conformists. Philipp Gallicius regularly consulted Heinrich Bullinger as he wrote the order. A hitherto forgotten letter from Gallicius to Heinrich Bullinger that is occasionally even considered to be fictitious, in addition to other important letters written between 1522 and 1552, shed new light on the formation, writing, and reception of the Raetian Confession, and challenges previous research conclusions.
