One of the Protestants was Count von Thurn His descendants owned and ran in Bohemia.
German economic recovery was always a possibility until Germany was trampled underfoot by her neighbours. One of the causes of the Thirty Years' War 1618-1648 was the growing religious and political tension between Roman Catholics and Protestant Christians. Together with the many other figures of the German Romantic movement, they influenced the more positive and less militaristic aspects of German nationalism in the first half of the nineteenth century. The Peace of Westphalia It took all the warring parties 4 years to hammer out the conditions for peace. The Treaty of Westphalia tied the hands of the Emperor and enabled the German princes to conclude their own alliances with foreign powers if they so wished.
This would allow sailors to better guide their ships and to come up with new ship designs. With religious and political tensions in the latter regions remaining high, fighting continued. The election of Ferdinand alarmed Bohemian Calvinists who feared the loss of their religious rights they rightfully owned. It was this war, where all the Albinos across Europe, ganged-up on the Black Holy Roman Empire, which killed-off millions of Black Europeans, and resulted in most of the survivors being shipped to the Americas as slaves or Indentures.

With Sweden, France had blocked the Habsburg efforts to strengthen their authority in the Empire. Ironically, Bavaria was the only country comparable to Denmark's strong financial position. This caused a division religiously or based on religious affiliation within Europe with the Catholics in the south, Lutherans in central Germany, and the Calvinists in the northern part of Europe. While this is not to say that the close of the war mended relations between those of diverse faiths, this separation made it so that this was the last real religious war fought. Along with the heavy taxation, governments deliberately depreciated the value of the currency, which resulted in inflation and soaring prices.
It was only in the 18th century that a revival of Czech identity began to reverse this. Protestant reformation drove Europe into a time a chaos such as the Middle East in today's world. In spite of such uprisings, the discontent and suffering of the people were ignored by governments. Some of the social consequences of this conflict can be seen in this treaty.

The impact of the war on the total population of Germany was long—lasting. At the end of the war, population and production declined in the Empire, and inflation and disease increased drastically. A parallel struggle involved the rivalry of with the Habsburgs of the empire and with the Habsburgs of Spain, who had been attempting to construct a cordon of anti-French alliances. The peripheral routes, therefore, became more important, as England, the Netherlands, France and Sweden all reduced their volume of trade with Central Europe.
Spain sent soldiers to Ferdinand who found allies in Maximillian of Bavaria and Lutheran elector John George I. Both sides have been thoroughly represented and the dispute persists today, although the majority of historians have tended to accept the most convincing components of each. The writers of the eighteenth century, especially Voltaire and Diderot, condemned the fanaticism which produced the excesses of brutality and destruction. Poor harvest coupled with heavy taxation resulted in revolts by the peasantry in various parts of Europe. However, the third weakness—the religious upheaval of the 16th century—changed all that: princes who had formerly stood together were now divided by religion.
In the course of this composite arguments from both sides will be used and illustrated. The Thirty Years War began as a religious war between the German Roman Catholics and Protestants. The sizes of the armies required for the prolonged fighting required vast amounts of money and because the fighting went on so long with mercenary troops, the only alternative was to heavily tax the citizens of the states going to war. He profited greatly from his policies in northern Germany. Lutherans feared that the Peace of Augsburg would be undermined by Calvinist and Catholic gains. There were, of course, some exceptions to the process of decline. As the courts of rulers like Frederick the Great 1740—86 replaced the Free Cities as the cultural centres of Germany, foreign and non-indigenous influences were bound to develop.
