Appenzell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (182 words)
Appenzell (or Appenzellerland) is a region in the northeast of Switzerland, entirely surrounded by the Canton of St. Gallen.
Appenzell became a full member of the confederation in 1513, and religious divisions resulting from the Protestant Reformation culminated in a split in 1597 between the Catholic Innerrhoden and Protestant Ausserrhoden.
Usually den Beiden Appenzell ("the two Appenzells") are spoken of in a political context, and Appenzellerland in a geographic context, if the aim is to refer to Innerrhoden and Ausserrhoden collectively.
