discrimination joined wider controversies regarding Weltanschauung . This point of view was widely accepted among Prussian civil servants and led to many conflicts with the Catholic Church. Denominational motives were certainly behind some of these attacks. Members of the Evangelischer Bund zur Wahrung der deutsch-protestantischen Interessen (Evangelic Association for the Realization of German Protestant Interests) and journalists

, which did not remove the severe restrictions and disabilities upon Dissenters and left the Anglican Church’s privileged relationship with the state untouched. Perhaps the most anachronistic factor to survive the settlement, one reeking of Church–state collusion, was the continued obligation on all to pay the tithe for the upkeep of the Anglican clergy. So, amongst many of the most well educated yet disadvantaged Dissenters, the failure of the Toleration Act to end discrimination ensured that the 1680s crisis of the Church continued into the 1690s and beyond.
