DESCRIPTION The Thirty Years' War was fought in Europe from 1618-1648. It was the last major religious war in Europe and ended the violence of the Reformation. What started out as a local, religious conflict grew into a continent-wide political conflict over the Balance of Power. The Peace of Westphalia set the stage for the decline of the Holy Roman Empire and the rise of France as the most powerful nation in Western Europe.
