The citizens of Paderborn showed interest in the reformation but the protestant era did not last long. The bishop soon called the Jesuit order to promote the counter-reformation and lead his ?sheep? back to the Roman Catholic faith.

The Jesuits built their convent and church in the heart of the town next to the city hall. They opened, on behalf of the Bishop, a high school and college in 1580. The old university buildings next to the church with their big tower are still used by a high school and by the university?s faculty of theology.
