"Vom Frieden" im Dreißigjährigen Krieg
Nicolaus Schaffshausens "De Pace" und der positive Frieden in der Politiktheorie
[“On Peace” in the Thirty Years War: Nicolaus Schaffshausen’s “De pace” and Positive Peace in Contemporary Political Theory]
Series:bibliothek altes Reich 25
Aims and Scope
During the Thirty Years War, political theory was dominated by a negative attitude toward peace. War shaped the major works, such as Hugo Grotius’ De iure belli ac pacis. Researchers have largely ignored that there were also writings actively focused on peace, such as Nicolaus Schaffshausen’s De pace. This study examines these writings and explores the positive notions and concepts of peace that existed at that time.
