The Essentials of International Public Law and Organization

By Amos S. Hershey | Go to book overview

This Peace, which marks the close of the Thirty Years' War and the establishment of the Modern European Statessystem on a legal basis, recognized the equality of the Catholic, Lutheran, and Calvinist confessions in Germany; and the independence and legal equality of the States (including the 332 sovereignties of Germany) of Western Christendom, whether Catholic or Protestant, monarchical or republican.96

"As a guarantee of faithful execution, the Treaties of Westphalia were accepted as a fundamental law by all contractants, who were empowered and bound to defend their provisions. Thus, for the first time, Europe received what may be fairly described as an international constitution, which gave to all its adherents the right of intervention to enforce its arrangements.97
