In parts of Bosnia, and in the Albanian-inhabited parts of the Empire, substantial numbers converted to Islam, a process which has left Muslim populations in these areas to the present. In addition, the Jewish population of the Ottoman Empire gradually rose as Jews were lured there by the promise of a religious toleration not extended to them in Christian Europe. In the sixteenth century Protestantism further divided the Christians of Eastern Europe. The teachings of Martin Luther proved popular among the German population of Prussia, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Baltic coast, as well as in Bohemia and Moravia; as an essentially German import, however, Lutheranism made rather fewer converts among Poles, Czechs and Hungarians.

This was largely a nineteenth-century development; yet clearly the identification of peoples such as the Slovaks or the Serbs as nations, despite their statelessness, originated in Herderian ideas.
