Where can I find an example speech of a Catholic priest to encourage the common people in order to defense their city against the invaders? - mainly for examples from the Thirty Years War era.

    Do you know this exists but just can't track the instance down or are you just hoping that there might be an example?

  • There are many cases this happened. I was wondering if it was roughly recorded in some place -like a novel or autobiography of a first eye witness etc.

    Saint Genevieve said to parisian people to take weapons and defend the city against viking (pagan) invasion. Does that count ? It is way before the 30 years war. Feb 15, 2017 at 10:44
  • Still gives an idea.. But I am mainly focused on the speech given by a Catholic priest during the Thirty Years War

  • There's the famous "Cry of Dolores" by Father Hidalgo in Mexico, but that was during the Napoleonic Wars.
