Historians have tried time and again to identify the central issues of the conflict which devastated Europe between 1618 and 1648. The Thirty Years War by Ronald G. Asch puts the religious and constitutional struggle in the Holy Roman Empire squarely back into the centre of events. However, other issues are not neglected. Thus the problems of war finance are shown to be an important key to the interaction between inter-state and domestic conflicts during the war. Equally confessional tensions are analysed as a decisive factor linking international and domestic disputes, and the reader is provided with a succinct narrative account concentrating on the major turning points of the war.

Die kaiserlich-französischen Beziehungen 1641-1648: Ein Beitrag zur Diplomatiegeschichte des Westfälischen Friedenskongresses

Der Westfälische Frieden im Jahr 1648 bildet eine wesentliche Zäsur in der Geschichte des europäischen Mächtesystems der Neuzeit. Insbesondere für den deutschen Raum wurden die Weichen bis zum Ende des Reiches gestellt. Die langwierigen und komplexen Verhandlungen zwischen den Kriegs- und Interessenparteien stellten eine bis dahin ungekannte diplomatische Leistung dar, die sich freilich immer auch an den Ausgängen der Kriegshandlungen orientierte. Die vorliegende Studie beschäftigt sich mit dem Verhältnis der Gesandten des Kaisers Ferdinand III. und des französischen Königs Ludwig XIII. und seines Nachfolgers Ludwig XIV. In der Form ihres Handelns ließen diese sich in erster Linie von Präzedenz- und Repräsentationsfragen leiten, wie sie die kulturalistische Perspektive in die Geschichtswissenschaft eingebracht hat. Im Ergebnis entschieden jedoch stets handfeste politische und geostrategische Überlegungen über die Verhandlungsergebnisse.

Aspekte der politischen Kommunikation im Europa des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts

Politische Theologie – Res Publica-Verständnis – konsensgestützte Herrschaft

Anstelle einer Untersuchung von "Modernisierungstendenzen", wie sie in den letzten Jahrzehnten im Zentrum geschichtswissenschaftlichen Arbeitens gestanden haben, geht es den Autoren dieses Bandes um die Selbstbeschreibung politischer Ordnungen durch die Zeitgenossen. Den Zugang dazu eröffnet der Fokus auf die politische Kommunikation. Wiegt man die verschiedenen Herrschaftskonzeptionen gegeneinander ab, dann tritt Überraschendes zu Tage: Die Frühe Neuzeit kannte einen kräftigen Republikanismus ebenso wie starke Strömungen zur Begrenzung von Herrschaft, die in Mischverfassungssystemen organisiert waren. Die Beiträge erfassen Ost- und Westeuropa gleichermaßen.

The Thirty Years War (1618-48) was the most destructive European conflict prior to the twentieth century. It reduced the population of central Europe by around a quarter and left thousands of towns and villages in ruins. This uniquely comprehensive collection of translated documents covers all aspects of the war in the words and images of those who directly experienced it, from the key political and military decision-makers, through the middling ranks of officers and envoys to the masses of ordinary soldiers and civilians, laity and clergy, women and men. Most of the material appears in English for the first time, including a variety of previously unpublished archival sources, all reproduced in their full original length. The wide range of sources covered includes: • state documents • treatises • diplomatic and private correspondence • diaries • financial records • artistic evidence Thematically organised, the material is supported by an authoritative introduction, a guide to further reading and a full chronology, as well as extensive annotations explaining terms and points of detail. The rich source material and essential context that this book provides make it an invaluable resource for students and anyone interested in European and military history.

The Concept of Exile in Ancient Israel and its Historical Contexts

The exile is a central turning point in Israel’s construction of the past as it is recorded in the Hebrew Bible. The latter’s concept/s of exile are involved, among others, in constructions of patriarchal narratives, the Egyptian sojourn and slavery that led to the Exodus, and the motif of “the empty land” during the Babylonian period. Moreover, ancient Israelite concepts of exile have exerted much influence in later Christian and Jews discourses. This volume gathers papers presented at two workshops organized by the University of Munich and the University of Alberta.

Späthumanismus und Konfessionspolitik

The correspondence of Georg Michael Lingelsheim (1557/8-1636) and the circle he corresponded with are analyzed here with reference to the current research discussion on late humanism. Around 1600 Lingelsheim was one of the central figures in the European scholarly republic and as a senior executive official in Heidelberg was prominently involved in the denominational conflicts of the age. On the basis of his correspondence, his role in Palatine politics and above all his status in the late humanist res publica litteraria are studied as an instance of a late humanist career in an age of confessional dispute. At the same time we gain an impression of the discussions taking place among scholars of the day and of the late humanist scholarly republic. The study also includes a catalogue of all the letters to and from Lingelsheim that have come down to us and an edition of two hitherto unknown occasional poems.

Martin Luthers 95 Thesen, in denen er gegen Missbräuche beim Ablass und besonders gegen den geschäftsmäßigen Handel mit Ablassbriefen auftrat, wurden am 31. Oktober 1517 als Beifügung an einen Brief an den Erzbischof von Mainz und Magdeburg, Albrecht von Brandenburg, das erste Mal in Umlauf gebracht. Da eine Stellungnahme Albrechts von Brandenburg ausblieb, gab Luther die Thesen an einige Bekannte weiter, die sie kurze Zeit später ohne sein Wissen veröffentlichten und damit zum Gegenstand einer öffentlichen Diskussion im gesamten Reich machten.

Sovereignty

Moral and Historical Perspectives

Sovereignty generally refers to a particular national territory, the inviolability of the nation’s borders, and the right of that nation to protect its borders and ensure internal stability. From the Middle Ages until well into the Modern Period, however, another concept of sovereignty held sway: responsibility for the common good. James Turner Johnson argues that these two conceptions—sovereignty as self-defense and sovereignty as acting on behalf of the common good—are in conflict and suggests that international bodies must acknowledge this tension. Johnson explores this earlier concept of sovereignty as moral responsibility in its historical development and expands the concept to the current idea of the Responsibility to Protect. He explores the use of military force in contemporary conflicts, includes a review of radical Islam, and provides a corrective to the idea of sovereignty as territorial integrity in the context of questions regarding humanitarian intervention. Johnson’s new synthesis of sovereignty deepens the possibilities for cross-cultural dialogue on the goods of politics and the use of military force.
