First posted on December 5th 2007, last revised using Dr. Link Check on October 1st 2012






Glarus joined the Swiss Confederation in 1352. During the Reformation, in Glarus a Protestant community emerged while a Catholic community continued to exist. From 1798 to 1803, within the Helvetic Republic, Glarus was part of the Canton of Linth. In 1803 the Swiss Confederation and the Canton of Glarus (without Werdenberg) were reestablished.
