1618: Paniek in de Republiek

Op 19 november 1618 verscheen een heldere komeet aan de ochtendhemel die in heel Europa voor grote paniek zorgde en in vele traktaten en pamfletten bediscussieerd werd. Wat kon deze staartster te betekenen hebben? Het jaarlijkse congres van de Werkgroep Zeventiende Eeuw is gewijd aan de grote en kleinere gebeurtenissen in 1618 in de Republiek en de Zuidelijke Nederlanden in hun internationale politieke en culturele context.
