".....Protestantism didn't act only against the church hierarchies of the papists, but also against the pagan superstitions of simple catholic people. For the average peasant the Reformation was an hard experience. It could arouse enthusiasm without obstacles moreover for those ones, who were less influenced by the manipulation, ready for the changing and open minded. One of the bitterer episodes of the career of Trubar was the clash with the absence of faith among the people......". (Marjan Smrke about the 'Lutheranization' of the rustic layer of the society) (*)

(*) You can see also some of my comments (mostly in my bad Slovenian but also some copy-paste quotes from D. Willinger's CCR blog) from page 4 of the comments below the article of the interview with Marjan Smrke:

(As I have no time, no resources, no money, no support at disposition, it is clear that what I wrote is affected by many errors and uncorrectness. I am not a prostitute lay journalist of this dirty Vatican 'tollerant' regime called 'democracy'. I have not the 51% of the Bank of America supporting my writings. I don't control the Casinò of Ostenda and neither Citroen and Peugeot as the General Superior did at least in 1958. So corrections and additions could appear in the future)
