| Most central and smallest of
the Netherlands' provinces. The current province is the former
heartland of the medieval diocese of Utrecht, also known as Het Sticht,
which covered most of the country north of the river Waal. In the 12th
century the county of Gelre managed to capture the Veluwe, after which
Het Sticht fell apart in two seperate areas, Nedersticht and
Oversticht. In 1527 temporal power was handed over to emperor Charles
V, leaving the bishop with religious power only. Oversticht became a
seperate province, later known as Overijssel.
The heartland of the diocese became the province of Utrecht. Apart from
several small changes, the province still covers the same territory.
The largest cities are Utrecht and Amersfoort. Population is part
protestant, part catholic.
