Is there any regulation on permanent sharing of churches with Protestants?
I came across one church that belongs both to Catholics and Protestants in Germany. It is the Cathedral of St Peter in Bautzen.
The Evangelicals (which is not exactly the same here in Germany as the word means in the US) and the Catholics there have been sharing the Cathedral for 500 years.
It’s not a total sharing, though. The Protestants wouldn’t be using the Catholic altar. The cathedral is separated by an iron grid (with a door in it since 1954, another one to come now) into a Catholic part and a Protestant part, two altars.
What are your opinions on this? Are there any Church regulations that govern the sharing of Catholic churches?
