The Peace of Augsburg, 1555, was a temporary settlement of religious conflict in the Holy Roman Empire. Each prince could now decide whether Lutheranism or Roman Catholicism was to prevail in his land. ("cuius regio, eius religio"). The sides began fighting again in 1618 in what became the Thirty Years War.
