Led by church historian and priest Johann Joseph Ignaz von Döllinger, German Catholics opposed to the doctrine of papal infallibility meet in Münich and decide to set up independent worship, separate from Vatican control.

The first meeting is held in a church donated by the town council of Münich, and Döllinger recommends a union with the Church of England.

This is the beginning of what will become known as the Old Catholic movement.
