Summary of Religion in Germany

Religiously, Christianity dominates Germany today as it has for several centuries. In the 16th century, the nation was the heartbeat of the Protestant Reformation, which was led by native German, Martin Luther.

Roman Catholicism is still numerically and culturally significant in Germany.

Islam is on the rise in Germany in accelerating fashion, like elsewhere in Europe, and is expected to growth even more in the near future.
