Los von Rom

Quick Reference

(Ger., ‘free from Rome’). An anti-Roman Movement begun in Austria in 1897 and fostered by the Pan-German party, who aimed at the incorporation of an Austria, freed from the Pope, into Germany under the protection of the Protestant Hohenzollern Emperors. Though most of those who left the RC Church became nominally Protestant, the Movement was essentially anti-Christian.
