This volume gauges the importance of religious influences on foreign policy and war after the conclusion of the Peace of Westphalia, which ended the Thirty Years’ War in 1648. It questions the traditional view that Westphalia was a watershed event in international relations that ended wars of religion and led thereafter to a purely secular system of power politics in Europe.
