From the dust jacket: "In a remote village on the Dutch-German border, a young Catholic woman named Cunegonde tries to kidnap a baby to prevent it from being baptized in a Protestant church. When she is arrested, fellow Catholics stage an armed raid to free her from detention. These dramatic events of 1762 triggered a cycle of violence, starting a kind of religious war in the village and surrounding region." Illustrated with black and white photographs, maps and reproductions, 30 such in total. Twenty-six pages of bibliographic al notes and a 16 page index. The spine tips show a whisper of shelf wear, otherwise the book is as-new. The dust jacket shows the same wear.
