Foreign Policy, Religious Conflict and Public Discourse
in post-Westphalian Europe (1648-1713)
On 7 and 8 January 2005, The Williamite Universe organises its third annual conference, in Paleis Het Loo, Apeldoorn, The Netherlands, entitled Foreign Policy, Religious Conflict and Public Discourse in post-Westphalian Europe (1648-1713).
This conference intends to gauge the continuous influence of religion on armed conflict after the so-called Wars of Religion. In particular, it aims to study the direct influence of religious motivations in the conduct of foreign policy and war, and propaganda and perception of such motivations within a wider public discourse. In line with the aims of The Williamite Universe, the conference will mainly concentrate on Western-Europe as a geographical entity, and will be limited to the period between 1648 and 1713 as a coherent period in European history.
Papers are invited on the following topics:
Religious motivations in the conduct of foreign policy
Religious motivations in the conduct of war
Religious propaganda on foreign policy and warfare
Religious rhetoric in public discourse on foreign policy and warfare
