Religious settlement following the Diet of Augsburg of 1555, which established the right of princes in the Holy Roman Empire (rather than the Emperor himself) to impose a religion on their subjects – later summarized by the maxim cuius regio, eius religio (‘whose realm it is, his the religion’).

 Theology Today - Vol 37, No. 3 - October 1980 - ARTICLE - Augsburg and Catholicism: Healing the Reformation Breach
The singular ecumenical importance of Augsburg is not limited to its being the almost universally normative confession among Lutherans, the largest non-Roman group of Christians in the West.
Article 7 of Augsburg hardly suggests the bare bones: "The church is the assembly of saints in which the Gospel is taught purely and the sacraments are administered rightly." Yet it may turn out that Lutherans, as ecclesiological easy riders, so to speak, are ecumenically better positioned for their task.
They did demand (and at Augsburg it was more like a request) the freedom to proclaim the gospel as they understood it and to advance practical reform in accord with that understanding.
