A preachership was the title originally given to the congregations of men with superior education required to give about a hundred sermons to the public as a result of their dissatisfaction with poor-quality sermons of medieval church. These sermons were considered more important than the Eucharist.
Preacherships became Protestant leaders and were found in Stuttgart, Reutlingen, Eisenach, and Jena. Many preachers in the towns as Stuttgart, Reutlingen, Eisenach, and Jena after 1517, became Protestant leaders, as they were attracted by Martin Luther's ideas during the Protestant Reformation.
