Abstract: We consider algebras $A$ over a Dedekind domain $R$ with the property $A \cong \operatorname{EndAlg}_R A$ and generalize Schultz' structure theory of the case $R=\mathbb{Z} $ to Dedekind domains. We construct examples of mixed $E(R)$-algebras, which are non-split extensions of the submodule of elements infinitely divisible by the relevant prime ideals. This is also new in the case $R=\mathbb{Z} $.
