There has been much written about the Thirty Years' War. Yet many questions remain open. It was a "war of wars", in the sense of an accumulation of wars and types of conflicts, is at the center of interest. In terms of what matters to us in looking at war, we mainly concentrate our interest on mental, confessional, economic, military, social and genuinely political structures. The proliferation of the modern system of the state, which, between public conception and constitutional law, was first waged in the course of this war, had a long-lasting effect on Europe. The nationalization of war and peace was still in a transitional crisis and already showed the coming weaknesses that would define the continent for decades. The first solutions were laid out in 1648 in international norms of behavior and in the federal constitution of the German nation. But it was also a "war of wars" in the sense of an extraordinary war experience combined into the myth. The increase in the horrors of war is based, above all on forms of a war that would never end.
