Following the Christian Reformation (Protestant Reformation), led in Germany by Martin Luther, as well as a period of Swedish (Sweden) rule, the traditional faith in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is Protestantism, specifically Lutheranism. There are also a number of Catholics and people of other faiths. Both confessions are split at the old border; Mecklenburg belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Mecklenburg and the Archdiocese of Hamburg, West Pomerania forms the Pomeranian Evangelical Church (some parts however belonging to Brandenburg (Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia) in this respect) or belongs to the Archdiocese of Berlin. As to the Protestants, a union to form a ''North Church'' (together with the North Elbians (North Elbian Evangelical Lutheran Church)) is in progress.
