Synod of Homberg

Quick Reference

A synod convoked by Philip, Landgraf of Hesse, in 1526 to establish a constitution on Protestant principles for the Church of his domains. It appointed a committee to draw up a Church Order for Hesse; the document which it issued, however, insisted on the independence of each congregation and was never promulgated.
