Summary

Confronting the successful state Holland with the rogue state Spain, Grotius develops a comparative politics pointing to concordia and justice as conditions for sustainable political order, characterized by its constitution. When it comes to the management of church and religion in the state, from a broadly Erastian position, Grotius reconstructs the (biblical) history of the administration of religion to conclude that it unreservedly is in the care of the supreme authorities, even if it can be delegated. Yet, religious convictions cannot be forced, and religious beliefs differ over the globe. At the same time, the relativity that pervades his ars politica can be seen as contained within a unifying conception of what the demands of politics are.
