The institution of Episcopal conferences were under way in Europe during the first period of the 19th century, coinciding with the pontificate of Pius IX. In the German regions the dynamics taking place between the conventus episcoporum, the Vatican and the governments of 1848 up to 1878 presented a very interesting case. This period saw the attempts of regional and national conferences that were a response to the needs that sprang out of the State-Church relationship that the bishops were called to address at a collegial level in accordance to the directives given by the Vatican.
