The 30 Years' War (1618-48) and the Second Defenestration of Prague

This event has finished Took place on: Wednesday, 23rd May 2018

Professor Wilson will examine the causes, conduct and consequences of the Thirty Years’ War, Europe’s most destructive conflict prior to the two 20th-century world wars. The talk takes place on the 400th anniversary of the defenestration of three Habsburg officials by Bohemian malcontents in Prague. This violent act triggered a crisis which expanded into general war despite the best efforts of most of those involved to contain it. 

Why it took so long to make peace, and what extent the conflict can be considered a ‘religious war’ will also be discussed.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture.

Cost: Free of Charge
