In 1731 the Archbishop of Salzburg purged his lands from Protestants. The Protestants had grown in number over the years and the archbishop had started to feel his powers threatened by their existence. More than 26000 ethnic German Protestants fled for their lives. 17000 of them were welcomed in Prussia in 1732 and most of them settle in East Prussia. Several Protestant countries started nation-wide collections to help the fugitives.
