about this item

Looking at religious conflict between Martin Luther's protestation and the Peace of Westphalia, Constantinidou explores four specific responses to religious mayhem by authors from different areas of Europe who were incited either by personal experience or by observation of religious discord. The French theologian Pierre Charron (1541-1603) and the Flemish scholar Justus Lipsium (1547-1606) lived through the religious warfare and were tormented by it, either suffering arrest or having to flee conflict and having their house sacked, she says. On the other hand the Venetian Paulo Sarpi (1552-1623) and Scottish king James VI and I (1566-1625), both active political agents in the affairs of their own states, observed closely the conflicts in France and the Low Countries, the outbreak of the Thirty Years' War, and the culmination of long-term unresolved polico-religious issues.
