The issue of whether Protestants could ever again serve in a West German army was so controversially debated in the 1950s that it almost split the country's church. Hendrik Meyer-Magister shows how 1959's Heidelberg Theses eventually shifted the decision entirely onto the conscience of the individual in what proved to be an important step towards the individualisation of ethics in post-war Protestantism.
