Thirty Years War (new)
The Thirty Years' War (new)
THCC Wednesdays 1015-1215 fortnightly from 15th Jan
Convener: Michael Austin
‘The Thirty Years War was one of the longest and most devastating in European history. Nearly all the major European powers were drawn into this violent religious and political crisis, which raged across the continent between 1618 and 1648. It killed around a quarter of all Germans, with marauding bands of mercenaries laying waste to entire towns and regions across Central Europe, some of which never recovered.’
Because of the complexity of the topic and in order to be successful, our course will require the active engagement of participants. A short resources list will be sent out before commencement.
