Historical background


SWITZERLAND - Basel

Basel, ancient Roman fortress, is mentioned for the first time in 374 under the name "Basilia". In the seventh century, the city was elevated to bishop, then 912, it became part of the kingdom of Burgundy before moving in 1032 under the authority of the Holy Roman Empire. Basel opposed to the Habsburgs, and in 1501 she joined Confederation. The Reformation was introduced there in 1529, and the bishop was forced to flee, many cities of the former bishopric of Basel, however, remained under Catholic domination.
