We are seeking a third panelist as well as a commentator/chair for a panel for the 2016 GSA conference. This panel will focus on the relationship between religion and politics in the early modern German speaking world in the era after the various Wars of Religion and Westphalian settlement (late 17th & 18th centuries). Specifically we are interested in changes and/or continuities in the interplay between religion, politics, and law (broadly defined) in this era amid the reality of lasting confessionalization and religious division in the Empire.
