Summary:
Copy of records of meetings and letters exchanged in connection with negotiations that took place from 3 July (Heuwmonat) to around mid or late August 1582, among Jacques-Christophe Blarer de Wartensee (Jakob Christoph Blarer von Wartensee), Bishop of Basel; the leadership of the district or bailiwick (Herrschaft, Vogtij, Ampt) of Pfeffingen (today located in the district of Arlesheim in the canton Basel-Landschaft, also called Baselland, Switzerland), which fell within Blarer's jurisdiction; and emissaries of the 7 Catholic cantons of the Swiss Confederation allied with Blarer: Luzern, Uri, Schwyz, Unterwalden, Zug, Freiburg, and Solothurn. Pfeffingen had earlier come under the influence of the Reformation and these negotiations marked the beginning of Blarer's introduction of the Counter-Reformation there. The copies of the 8 documents appear to form a unit, transcribed together.
