ABSTRACT
This article discusses the women in movements of religious dissent in Germany. Rationalism created doubt and combined with the search for a spiritual sense of life within the social changes generated by early industrialization. Criticism of traditional religion involved fundamental criticism of the state and society. Secession from the church was difficult without the mutual support of networks of school friends, neighbors, colleagues and relatives. Ideas about organizational structure, religion and socio-political aims.
