It is generally assumed that the peace negotiations at Münster and Osnabrück were influenced by the Spanish authors of the so-called Second Scholastics such as Francisco Suarez and Francisco de Vitoria, although evidence of that influence is lacking. It is possible, however, to establish that Grotius's book on the law of war and peace did influence the Westphalian negotiations. De iure belli et pacis was first published in 1625; it was widely read and during the 1630s it was used for teaching purposes in the universities of Strasbourg, Tübingen, Ingolstadt and Uppsala.
