HISTORY of Christian Theology

(A.D. 1648) The Peace of Westphalia ends the Thirty Years’ War in Germany. It reinstitutes the Peace of Augsburg and includes various forms of the Reformed tradition, but not the Anabaptists, as an acceptable religion, in addition to Catholicism and Lutheranism, for the local prince to impose on his province. The Peace of Westphalia ends the religious wars spawned by the Protestant Reformation. It set out the principles of the modern international order where peace is assured through the recognition of independent sovereign states, non-interference in domestic affairs, and a balance of power between those states. It establishes an enduring religious and political relationship in Europe.
