Best Answer

Because it ended by diplomatic means two very long-running wars: the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Dutch Republic, wich gave the Dutch Republic its independence from Spain; and the devastating Thirty Years' War between the Protestant and Catholic countries within the Holy Roman Empire, a war that had also drawn a lot of outside parties into the conflict.

All in all, the Peace of Westphalia ended war conditions between the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III of Habsburg, the Kingdom of Spain, the Kingdom of France, the Swedish Empire, the Dutch Republic, and a great number of Principalities and city-states within the Holy Roman Empire.

What are the major animist beliefs?

Animism is belief in the spiritual forces that inhabit every landmark, and even trees and other familiar objects. One of the most important of the early European animist beliefs was Mother Earth, known sometimes as Gaia. The sun, moon and stars were also worshipped. Animism preceded what we now call paganism, but the dividing line is not clear-cut. Perhaps the difference is when the spirit that dwelt in an object became regarded as a god associated with the object, but not confined to it. Or when the god became regarded as human-like.
