What religion was Adolph Hitler?

By john.a.wills ·
Born and brought up an Austrian, one would expect him to be Catholic. But the church he inspired as Leader was a transformed United Evangelical. I have read the first volume of Mein Kampf, the autobiographical part, and noticed no reference to his own religion and only one to that of others.

There's no comparison between the two, Adolf was a much better orator, though I couldn't understand him either

As for Adolf, perhaps that's simply owing to not understanding a "foreign" language.

Anglican?

by john.a.wills In reply to According to some of the ...

In Austria? I thought all the Anglicans in Austria were U.S. and Commonwealth ex-pats. And Mein Kampf doesn't mention anything about being a student in Vienna, just a worker. I admit that Mein Kampf may not be reliable, but it seems a good first approximation to an accurate biography.
