The history of the Holy Roman Empire makes it easy to see why the Imperial Scouts and Guides of the Holy Roman Empire are predominantly Catholic in nature. The Imperials Scouts and Guides are under the direct spiritual guidance and leadership of the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church (Old Holy Roman Church of the English Rite), an Old Roman Catholic Patriarchate descended from the See of Utrecht, which itself played a significant role in the Holy Roman Empire and was granted independence by the Holy See in 1145. The Holy Roman Empire, however, was historically not exclusively Catholic, and following in this tradition, membership and the awards are available to non-Catholics as well. It is in this spirit of ecuminism that the Holy Roman Empire, maintaining the strength of its traditions, uses the Imperial Scouts and Guides to further its mission of preservation of history, the Church, and the promotion of freedom around the world.
