According to the terms of the constitution, entire liberty of conscience and complete social equality is granted to the members of all religious confessions. The royal family, and a majority of the inhabitants, belong to the Reformed Church; but the Roman Catholics are not far inferior in numbers. In the census of 1849--more recent enumerations do not show the religious creed--the number of Calvinists, or members of the Reformed Church, is given as 1,906,618; of Lutherans, 66,170; of Roman Catholics, 1,220,087; of Greek Catholics, 41; of divers other Christian denominations, 41,151; and of Jews, 64,070. The government of the Reformed Church is Presbyterian; while the Roman Catholics are under an archbishop, of Utrecht, and four bishops, of Harlem, Breda, Roermond, and Herzogenbush. The salaries of several British Presbyterian ministers, settled in the Netherlands, and whose churches are incorporated with the Dutch Reformed Church, are paid out of the public funds. There is a strongly-developed tendency to sectarianism in the larger towns of the Netherlands, illustrated in the subjoined analysis of the population of Amsterdam, in the year 1860:--Members of the Dutch Reformed Church... 128,228 ?
