The aim of the Panel is to continue the discussion begun with scholars as part of the previous edition of the European Academy of Religion concerning the nature of the Thirty Years War. The aim over the years has been to set up an observatory over the relative historiography of the phenomenon of religious wars. In contrast to the 2018 edition, the chronological arc this year will be extended to include the French Wars of Religion. In addition to a bibliographic overview, thematic convergences will be treated, such as dual loyalty (to the king and the state), the relations between princes and the elite, and the piety of the soldiers.
