Grotius lived in the times of the Eighty Years' War between Spain and the Netherlands and the Thirty Years' War between Catholic and Protestant European nations; it is not surprising that he was deeply concerned with matters of conflicts between nations and religions.
Himself a Calvinist, he was a moderate who had many contacts with Catholics and hoped for a reunification of the Christian churches.
In 1625 he published his book De jure belli ac pacis libri tres (Of laws of war and peace) where he presented his theory of "just war" and argued that all nations are bound by the principles of "natural law."
