The Thirty Years War (1618-1648) and its 400th Anniversary!

« back to classes page
On May 23, 1618, a handful of irate Czech Protestants, acting in defense of their peculiar liberties, unceremoniously threw representatives of the Catholic Holy Roman Emperor out the window of Prague’s castle . This defiant act of ‘defenestration’ resulted in a series of devastating wars that dragged on for three decades and involved almost all of the major powers in Europe. As we mark the upcoming 500 year anniversary of this virtually forgotten conflict, we will take a look at this last gasp of the continental wars of religion which refashioned the political and intellectual climate of Europe, and ponder its lessons for today’s unquiet times.
