This article traces the history of the Old Catholic press in Switzerland from 1870 to 1924. Each linguistic region of Switzerland developed differently. The German-speaking areas saw three periodicals published in this period. The editors used the networks they had with similar German magazines. The more numerous Old Catholic periodicals in Western Switzerland developed in exchange with French Reform Catholics. Clergymen were first to edit the magazine in both regions. From 1873 or in Geneva from 1876, politically oriented editors represented the ecclesiastical sector of the opinion press. From 1878 and 1883, respectively, the journals served as regional ecclesiastical communication organs, edited by clergymen and scientists. The editorial content dealt with developments in the relationship between church and state that differed in the two linguistic regions. Eugène Michaud and Eduard Herzog were important as founders and editors. Paris (Hyacinthe Loyson), Munich (Ignaz von Döllinger, Johann Friedrich), and Bonn (Franz Heinrich Reusch, Joseph Hubert Reinkens) served as inspirational centres for the journalistic activities.
